Supporting your team

These resources have been developed to support leaders and managers make sense of the changes taking place in the NHS. The sections below provide access to information that will help staff understand why change is happening and what the implications might be for staff and for patient care.

The resource provides methods to help staff generate questions about change and to help managers develop responses to these questions. Helping staff to understand what is not changing and where there is continuity can reduce fears and provide reassurance. There is a selection of tools for team leaders and managers to draw from, all of which have been found useful within the NHS.
