What is Flourish?

Flourish is Newcastle Hospitals cornerstone programme for supporting staff to liberate their full potential.

The concept behind this evolving model of organisational development is simple: to build a framework which creates an environment that supports staff to bring their ‘best self’ to work, provide the best patient care, and lead innovation and change.

Flourish is also shaping our employee wellbeing agenda by adopting a holistic approach to creating a healthy workplace and, through a series of workshops and focus groups, has explored the key themes of a well workforce, being valued and recognised and behaviour and culture.

We also visually promote our ethos of Flourish through a distinct brand, which includes this website, and encourage staff to get involved in new challenges and opportunities such as #LetsMove, #LetsTalk and #SleepWell

Programmes of work are overseen by our Flourish steering group and key projects this year have included a full review of our flexible working practices and policies and examining the flexible options we might create for our workforce aged 60 plus.

Since its launch in 2018, #FlourishAtNewcastleHospitals has had a huge impact in supporting health and wellbeing, reward and recognition and we will continue to develop our programme across the entire organisation.
