Better Health at Work

The Better Health at Work Award (BHAWA) recognises the efforts of employers across the North East and Cumbria in addressing health issues within the workplace. We were proud to be awarded the final stage of the award ‘Maintaining Excellence’ in 2020.

With the support and endorsement of Public Health England, the BHAWA has been taken forward by all of the region’s Local Authorities, NHS Trusts, and the Northern TUC.

In December 2020, The Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust was awarded the final stage of the award ‘Maintaining Excellence’. Over the past couple of years we have continued to develop Flourish, to ensure staff are able to liberate their full potential.

We will continue our work on improving the mental health and wellbeing of our staff, and also look at ways in which we can support staff to increase their physical activity levels and maintain a healthy weight. We aim to create sustainable and inclusive health projects that will fit around the multiple shift patterns and abilities of staff working across the Trust.
