The Beat podcast is designed for healthcare professionals only and is brought to you by Nutricia. Our host Gill, an NHS midwife and nurse for almost 40 years, talks (remotely) to Professor Neil Greenberg about the psychological impact of COVID-19 on NHS healthcare workers. Neil is an academic psychiatrist based at King’s College London and is a specialist in occupational mental ill-health and post-traumatic stress disorder. His work has seen him deployed to hostile environments including Afghanistan and Iraq and he is currently supporting frontline NHS workers during the pandemic.
Gill and Neil talk about the incredible resilience of healthcare professionals, stress coping mechanisms, signs of mental health fatigue, and give some timely advice on how to support your colleagues.
