Bishop of London asks about funding for mental health and wellbeing of NHS Staff

The Bishop of London asked a question on continuation of mental health and wellbeing funding for NHS staff on 27th January 2022, during a debate on NHS Staff recruitment:

The Lord Bishop of London: My Lords, over the last two years I have been encouraged by the way in which the NHS has creatively met the mental health needs of nurses and other healthcare workers, encouraging their well-being and recognising what contributes to that. Can the Minister reassure us that the funding that has gone in over the last two years will continue to be put into the NHS, ensuring that we look after the well-being of our staff?

Lord Kamall (Con): That is an incredibly important point, which relates to an earlier point put by the noble Lord about retention. It is important that we look after our staff. We know that the last two years have been incredibly stressful, even more than usual, and that is why we have a number of different ways to help the health and well-being of the staff.
