The health and wellbeing team is today delighted to launch a new partnership with the financial experts at Schroders Personal Wealth to offer #TeamGateshead colleagues access to free financial wellbeing health checks as well as other resources, guidance, advice and webinars.

A subsidiary company of Lloyds Banking Group, Schroders will begin offering #TeamGateshead colleagues the ability to book free financial wellbeing health checks which can be requested through a form on our new dedicated Schroders microsite. The microsite is also home to webinars and materials around a range of financial matters, and also hosts their new inflation hub 0 helping you to understand and discover if and when you could take action to protect your finances against inflation.

Over half of UK adults admit that they often feel stressed due to their financial concerns, with almost one in three sharing that they believe money worries impact their performance at work. In healthcare then we know that financial wellbeing can ultimately impact patient care – making it all the more important we find as many ways to support you as possible.

To this end, we’re also delighted to launch a new page aimed at supporting you in planning your future. Whether you’re seeking more information on state pensions, previous pensions, the NHS Pension Scheme, credit scores, home buying, will writing, inheritance tax or otherwise, we’ve tried to put together a page that provides #SomethingForEveryone.

Efforts to continue supporting the financial wellbeing of our colleagues will continue over the coming weeks and months as part of our #GHMoneyMatters campaign, revealed earlier today in our monthly newsletter.
