At Lancashire and South Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust (LSCFT), they are now in the third year of their current trust strategies, which were developed during the pressures of COVID-19. A lot has changed since then, both within LSCFT and the wider NHS. They have identified the need to evolve and reflect these changes within their Strategy, and they're currently in the process of undertaking a Trust Strategy refresh.

​The trust values and quality priorities will remain the same, but they've introduced a new framework - The Quadruple Aim which will be the focus for the trust objectives over the coming years.

More information can be found here: Vision, values and strategic priorities :: Lancashire and South Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust (lscft.nhs.uk)
As part of their refresh, they want to listen and engage with both LSCFT colleagues and system partners. As a system partner of LSCFT, you're invited to attend an online workshop. There, updates on the strategy refresh will be provided, and participants will have the chance to get involved. The quadruple aim has been adopted, and views and feedback are sought to help formulate strategic goals.
Workshop Dates:
  • Thursday 7th March: 2-3pm
  • Monday 11th March: 11am-12pm
  • Tuesday 12th March: 6-7pm
  • Wednesday 13th March: 10-11am
To attend, please email Strategic.Planning@lscft.nhs.uk with your name, email address, preferred workshop date, organisation/group, and geographical location. Spaces are limited, so sign up for one workshop only. For tailored engagement or meeting requests, contact the same email address. For enquiries, email: Strategic.Planning@lscft.nhs.uk

Research from Deloitte found that the cost of poor mental health to employers increased from £45bn in 2019, to £56bn in 2020-21.
And according to the Mental Health Foundation, one in six employees experience mental ill health each year.
A study by Business in the Community found that only 14% of those that had experienced work-related poor mental health had spoken to their managers.
Acas has mental health training for managers and HR professionals, to improve line manager skills and also to explain the laws and responsibilities of the employer.

<![CDATA[Are you Meeting EHRC Guidance on Menopause?]]>Wed, 28 Feb 2024 12:41:52 GMThttp://bprcvs.co.uk/training/are-you-meeting-ehrc-guidance-on-menopauseReasonable Adjustments for Menopause: 
Meeting EHRC Guidance

Following new guidance from The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC), workplaces are being warned that they could face legal action if they fail to make ‘reasonable adjustments’ for their employees. 

Symptoms such as hot flushes, brain fog and difficulty sleeping are typical during menopause, which usually occurs in women during their 40s or 50s. The EHRC suggests that this hormonal change may now be considered a disability under the Equality Act 2010. 
Learning Curve Group have launched the UK’s first ever accredited qualification on understanding menopause in the workplace. Although the menopause experience is not the same for everybody, this Innovate Awarding Level 2 qualification will support increasing knowledge and breaking stigma associated with the menopause, including providing ‘reasonable adjustments’.
