A new monthly training session will provide colleagues within the organisation the opportunity to learn more about the health and wellbeing support offer available to them as part of #TeamGateshead.

The session is now live and open to all, inclusive of our QE Facilities colleagues, with all welcome to self-enrol via ESR to book a spot. The hour-long sessions are set to take place on a monthly basis from our dedicated health and wellbeing facility, the Listening Space, located just outside of the Jubilee Wing/the bottom end of the Peter Smith Surgery Centre car park, but are also available for teams to book to ensure we reach other locations.

Following on from feedback from many staff, including managers who have been surprised by size of our support offer when attending Managing Well sessions over the past year, the Occupational Health and Wellbeing team has been considering how it can spread the word more effectively.

During the session, colleagues will be introduced and guided through our website to ensure they are aware of the width and depth of our support offer; provided with direction on where they can find current and new support resources and advised as to how to confidently support any colleagues who might be seeking support.

Those who attend will be able to get a better understanding about our health and wellbeing offer here in Gateshead, whether across the six elements we focus in on via our website or in some of the support available from our partners and the services within our Occupational Health team.
