Without our staff, we wouldn’t be able to offer the world-class standards of safe and compassionate care the Newcastle Hospitals are renowned for. In return for their dedication, we are continually investing in the work environment.
We provide modern equipment and facilities, and ensure that staff have access to the latest technology, allowing them to keep up with the rapid pace of developments in healthcare.
We are committed to being an ‘employer of choice’, offering our staff superb benefits, looking after their wellbeing, and providing access to high quality education, training, career progression and support, to help them to provide patients with healthcare at its very best – with a personal touch.
Our Personal Touch Awards allow us to recognise, celebrate and thank staff who are exemplars in enhancing the patient experience. Each year we receive over 350 nominations.
In 2013, we signed the Armed Forces Covenant which ensures that those who serve or who have served in the armed forces, and their families, are treated fairly. As one of the largest employers in the North East, we recognise the importance the healthcare industry plays in supporting the nation’s defence and security and are fully committed to supporting the UK’s Armed Forces community, Reservists and Cadets. We also guarantee interviews for veterans and reservists.
We are also a Defence Employer Recognition Scheme silver award holder. We are currently working alongside various people within the Armed Forces community and charities to aim to achieve the gold award.
