The COVID-19 pandemic will be a testing and troubling time for healthcare workers in the United Kingdom. The wellbeing of NHS staff has quite rightly been highlighted in the national media. The PanSurg 'Staff and SAfety eFfects of Epidemic' (SSAFE) study will investigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the wellbeing of healthcare professionals.
PanSurg SSAFE aims to provide direct benefit to frontline healthcare staff in realtime by:
- Investigating staff safety, psychological wellbeing and burnout.
- Providing open access data to allow identification workforce issues.
- Deriving insights that assist workforce planning during and after the pandemic.
- Identifying areas where healthcare workers may benefit from workplace wellbeing interventions.
As part of the 'Staff and Safety eFfects of Epidemic on Foundation Trainees in Year 1' (SSAFEFTY1) study we are collecting data on the impact of COVID-19 on the safety attitudes and wellbeing of recent medical graduates deployed to interim Foundation Year 1 (FY1) posts. Please answer based on your experiences since deployment.
