#FlourishAtNewcastleHospitals is our cornerstone organisational development programme.
It is designed to enable all staff to liberate their potential, to bring their whole selves to work, to feel valued, to have a voice and a real sense of belonging to Newcastle Hospitals, and the NHS family.
We celebrate difference and our core values are built around this.
We are proud of our diverse workforce and their commitment to deliver and improve our outstanding patient care.
- create a ‘representative workforce’, with equality of opportunity and career development.
- ensure a workplace in which people feel valued because our success will be built on the commitment, skills and attitudes of all staff
- nurture a skilled, diverse and committed workforce where every individual – regardless of background – can share our purpose and reach their potential.
We recognise that equality of opportunity is not about treating everyone the same. It’s about responding to different needs and circumstances in a positive and fair way.
It is important to us that that employees are provided with support, guidance and training to enable them to flourish at work and make the best possible contribution to service delivery.
As a Disability Confident employer, and ranked 40 in the Stonewall Equality Index in 2020, we continue to be proud of the progress we have made whilst acknowledging there is more to do.
