Interim Report

The Boorman Review published its Interim Report on 19 August 2009, setting out emerging findings and initial recommendations on NHS staff health and well-being. To download the Report as a PDF, please click on the "Download Interim Report" button on the right. Alternatively, click here.

The Interim Report lays out the business case for change and makes recommendations for improvement in provision. Its findings are based on evidence gathered from across the NHS and its stakeholders;  with over 200 responses from experts and Trusts to the Call for Evidence, and  11,000 staff completing the staff perception survey; through engagement with staff and managers at workshops and meetings across the country, and information on best practice drawn from a comprehensive literature review.

The Interim Report was designed to enable staff and stakeholders, within the Service and beyond, to seize this opportunity to affect how DH and the NHS will address this critical issue and influence the final outcomes of the Review later this year.

We are hugely grateful for the many comments and contributions we have received through the Have Your Say feedback channel we ran on the site (closed 1 October 2009). Through that we have heard from those whose health and well-being has been exceptionally supported, and from those who have sadly lacked such support. We have seen overwhelming agreement that a greater prioritisation of staff health and well-being is needed, and have received many constructive suggestions from staff across the service. These will be essential to making our final recommendations as practical and realistic as possible.
