Project Wingman attends HSJ Patient Safety Awards

Project Wingman CEO, Emma Henderson MBE was delighted to have been able to attend the HSJ Patient Safety Awards in Manchester on Monday 18th September along with representatives from Kent & Medway Partnership Trust who have been using "Wellbee", one of Project Wingmans mobile well-being lounges to deliver "Talking Wellness" - a fantastic initiative which has changed and improved the lives of NHS Staff throughout the Kent & Medway region.

Wellbee spent a total of 28 weeks visiting NHS sites in the region, acting as a facilitator for Talking Wellness to be delivered to hundreds of NHS staff, and making a tangible difference to the lives of all who were able to access the service.

The impact was so great that staff sickness reduced, staff well-being was dramatically improved, and as a result, patient care was also improved.

Project Wingman delivers well-being services on its growing fleet of converted double decker buses which have raised perspex rooves, massage chairs, TV screens, music, refreshments and most importantly, are a break from the normal working environment where NHS staff can relax and take some time for themselves - something that is strongly encouraged in all NHS Trusts and departments.

It is a huge honour to have been nominated for this award and to have been selected as one of the finalists - testament to the huge value that is seen in what we are doing as a charity, by the NHS.
