The health, safety and wellbeing of shift workers in health and social care environments

The NHS Staff Council, March 2018

This guidance has been developed to highlight some of the key health, safety and wellbeing issues associated with shift work; and support managers to work in partnership with union representatives to mitigate the impact on staff and the organisation. Whilst patients are outside the scope of this document, by mitigating the impacts on staff, there is likely to be better  outcomes for patients.

This guidance covers staff under Agenda for Change terms and conditions but can be used to promote best practice in other areas.
