Health and Wellbeing Guardians are enablers when it comes to helping create a culture within an organisation which empowers the health and wellbeing of our people.

Here at Gateshead, we are fortunate to have Dr Ruth Bonnington as our Health and Wellbeing Guardian and as a Non-Executive Director. A GP with more than 25 years of experience, Ruth’s responsibility is to question decisions and challenge behaviours that impact you as staff here at Gateshead. Ruth has also kindly donated her time to support staff health and wellbeing activities and events.

While you can always contact the health and wellbeing team with any concerns, Ruth can also be contacted directly via the button below. You can also scroll further down the page to learn more about Ruth and her role.
