The BPS has also highlighted the immediate need to care for the psychological welfare of healthcare workers with the release of a guidance document aimed at healthcare managers, as well as healthcare staff.

The document offers recommendations for each phase from ‘preparation’ to the eventual ‘recovery ‘phase and highlights approaches to psychological welfare that will help to deal with how healthcare staff on the frontline are personally affected by the harsh consequences of caring for patients and their families with Covid-19.
