Winter wellbeing resources available from RCN

The Royal College of Nursing has launched a winter wellbeing campaign to encourage physical and mental health this winter. 

Winter often sees an increase in a range of infectious diseases; colds and flu alongside other respiratory infections and gastrointestinal infections including noroviruses. 

The #winterwellbeing campaign aims to support members in keeping healthy during the winter months as new RCN analysis shows NHS staff in England are now more at risk of mental health problems, chest and respiratory problems and migraines than before the pandemic. 

RCN resources include advice about the COVID-19 and flu vaccines as well as mindfulness and healthy eating guides to support members’ physical and mental wellbeing.

Helen Donovan, RCN professional lead for public health, said: “Organisations must make the vaccines readily available, with easy access to them during the working day. We know that if organisations do this, uptake goes up exponentially.”
