What is Better Health at Work?

The North East Better Health at Work Awards recognises the efforts of the employers in the North East and Cumbria in addressing health issues within the workplace.

Over the past three years Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has taken part in the North East Better Health at Work Awards, achieving Bronze, Silver and Gold in consecutive years. Newcastle Hospitals will continue to the next stage of the awards, Continuing Excellence (CE) during 2018/2019
