Professor Pauline Walsh, PVC for Health and Wellbeing and Executive Dean for the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences Health and Wellbeing Strategy

Our strategy focuses on a whole-university approach, recognising that people are central to a successful university. Therefore, in parallel with our People Strategy and Student Experience Strategy, this strategy seeks to promote and support the wellbeing of staff and students, enabling them to flourish at Keele.

In developing our strategy, we have engaged with a range of groups internally and externally, including staff and student communities. We are building from a basis of strength, with a range of high quality and well regarded facilities, services and activities already in place. The creation of an institutional strategy is intended to ensure cohesion and a strategic approach to the development and enhancement of our provision.

Our strategy draws on sector best practice, guidance and recommendations from the UUK Step Change Framework, the UK Healthy Universities Network and the NHS Confederation’s Five Ways to Wellbeing.
