You can also find health and wellbeing information from the News, Events (virtual), Health Advice and Staff Support sections of Umatter as well as the COVID-19 zones now situated on the homepage:


Do take time during your working day to explore the site as there is lots of useful information and tools available on it. You can also access the site at home on a computer, mobile phone or tablet device. Since the COVID-19 pandemic the Umatter site is now accesible to Trust staff and everyone in the community.  


Staying Connected via Email / New SHSCT Staff App

For staff who have a Trust email address or who have downloaded the new SHSCT Staff App (SHSCT Connect) launched on 12/5/2020 - look out for the weekly Friday Focus message as it will provide you with more detail about what's new on Umatter.


Other Ways To Stay Informed and Connected

Staff health and wellbeing information will also be shared across the Trust's Facebook and Twitter accounts and via the Southern I newsletter. If you haven't already signed up to these social media accounts please consider this. This will enable you to stay connected and you can share and retweet some of our messages with your colleagues, family and friends.

Look out for Southern Trust posts on Twitter and Facebook
