Changes are coming to TRiM

RRV with blurred paramedic

From this week (1st March), our trauma risk management (TRiM) will be run through the health and wellbeing team.

The TRiM process provides support to colleagues who have suffered traumatic stress at work. It’s peer delivered, proactive and evidence based, and looks to support individuals, signpost them to appropriate resources and assist them in returning to work.

The TRiM team are a group of specially trained practitioners who base their support on the principles of education, support and mentoring. As a peer-group delivered programme, the practitioners will listen to colleagues’ experiences and offer practical advice and support. We currently have a team of 165 TRiM practitioners throughout the Trust, with a recent recruit including our Director of Service Delivery, Kevin Brown.

Over the last few months, the health and wellbeing team has run training courses and update sessions for existing practitioners to get together, share experiences and ideas, and feedback what they think is and isn’t working well, so they can improve the system even more so it works better for staff.

Under the new system, all referrals will come into the wellbeing hub and be recorded anonymously. If you have any questions about the process you can contact Paul Cheshire, the team’s new health and wellbeing administrator, who will be looking after all things TRiM – drop him a line at

 Remember, TRiM is there to help you if you need support. A new referral form is available on East24 in the health and wellbeing section, and you can refer yourself or another person (but ideally please do so with their knowledge).

 If you want to know more, or have any questions around other wellbeing support available to you, you can contact the health and wellbeing team at
