Looking after the health and wellbeing of our staff is paramount. If we don’t look after ourselves, and each other, we cannot deliver safe, high quality care.

Through Flourish, our priority is to work with our staff to promote good physical, mental and psychological health and wellbeing, and to support those who need help.

Wellbeing is an important part of our lives. Taking time to actively think about how you can support your own sense of wellbeing is vitally important. Whether this is finding ways to manage the pressures and challenges you are facing or prioritising your own needs while taking care of others.

The health and wellbeing support for colleagues at Newcastle Hospitals is varied and widespread. We are committed to ensuring that:

  • Every NHS staff member has a conversation about their wellbeing and develop a personalised plan
  • This will be reviewed ‘at least’ annually and cover their health and wellbeing (physical, emotional and psychological), any flexible working requirements, equality, diversity and inclusion and civility and respect.
