A recent event shone a spotlight on hormone health awareness for Gateshead Health colleagues, and raised over £500 towards future health and wellbeing activities within the Trust.

The event, held at Bensham Hospital, was a huge success and included talks and information regarding menopause which were delivered by Dr Ruth Bonnington. Elsewhere, further details and support around other hormone-related conditions including Endometriosis were shared, while there was demonstrations of a variety of holistic and relaxation therapies along with information about taster sessions. 

In conducting the event, more than £500 was raised which will now go towards dedicated health and wellbeing activities for Gateshead Health colleagues. A massive thank you goes to the following businesses for kindly donating some fantastic prizes in the raffle and helping make the fundraising possible.
