We understand the challenges that supporting our patients 24 hours a day, 365 days a year has on our workforce, who are required to work varying shift patterns to provide this care.

We are working hard to review rotas, and rest and facilities available to you, to support you as much as possible in keeping you fit and well.

Below you will find an interesting video to watch, which is 16 minutes long, which explains in more detail how working nights affects your ability to function normally. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_SLWD9uXeNw

There is also an article by Michael Farquhar giving tips and advice on how to manage the effects of shift work on your health  and a report by the BMA on fatigue and sleep deprivation, which we encourage you all to read.

Some of this will get covered in your induction, but there will not be time for all articles to be discussed.
