John Lewis creates wellbeing area for NHS Nightingale staff

NHS Nightingale London

John Lewis Partnership will build a wellbeing centre for staff working at the new NHS Nightingale hospital in London.

The retailer said it would be designing and installing a wellbeing area for medical staff and volunteers at the hospital and the space would be the only area in the facility “specifically designed for all staff to have a place of sanctuary when they need help or time out to relax from their extremely challenging environment”.

John Lewis has also teamed up with the British Medical Association (BMA) to deliver care packages to frontline NHS workers.

From today, the retailer will start making 400 deliveries of “essential items” to help NHS staff “feel refreshed and energised during long shifts” with NHS Nightingale and the main London trusts to receive the first packages.
