Ruth's role at Gateshead Health
In my role as HWB Guardian, it’s my responsibility to question decisions and challenge behaviours that impact on the health and wellbeing of staff. The people of the Trust – YOU – are so crucial to the health care that the
people of Gateshead receive, and so we must ensure that YOU are yourselves looked after!
A man called Maslow talked about all the different types of things people need in order to flourish and they range from very basic physical needs (like air, water, shelter) through to safety and belonging and beyond.
As a Trust we want to ensure that you have what you need, not only to be successful in your job, but also to flourish
personally. This is a challenge in the pandemic, but that is what we should strive for.
