Stonewall Top 100 Employer
Dame Jackie Daniel, Chief Executive of Newcastle Hospitals said,
‘I’m incredibly proud to see that Newcastle Hospitals is now recognised as one of Stonewalls Top 100 Employers and it’s fantastic to be the highest ranking new entry in our sector.’
‘In the last 12 months we’ve worked hard to focus on LGBT+ inclusion. Over 5000 members of staff wear their NHS Rainbow Badge with pride and have pledged to take action to support inclusion and visibility. We’ve celebrated Pride together in the city with a breakfast for our staff and their families, as well as highlighting Trans inclusion across our NHS services.’
#FlourishAtNewcastleHospitals’ is our cornerstone programme aiming to enable every member of staff to liberate their full potential at work. An important part of this is supporting every member of staff to be their authentic self. As an organisation, we recognise and celebrate the value that difference and diversity brings. Members of our Board and Executive team are highly visible in their support for LGBT inclusion and in championing change for staff and patients regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity/expression. Our LGBT staff network also plays an important role in ensuring we value and celebrate diversity with passion and energy.
‘Building on this foundation, I’m delighted that Newcastle Hospitals will host the first national NHS LGBT+ staff conference in July 2020, encouraging the whole NHS to champion positive change.’

UK’s first 18-month nursing degree apprenticeship launched
Northumbria University, Newcastle will welcome its first ever nursing degree apprentices next month, in a brand new partnership with Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
The collaboration will be the first in the North East to deliver a nursing degree apprenticeship programme, and create England’s first ever apprenticeship-qualified nurses by March 2020.
Nursing degree apprenticeships were announced by the government in 2016, as a way of opening-up nursing careers to more people and bringing more qualified nurses into the NHS.
Since then, Northumbria University has been working with Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to develop and design its own degree apprenticeship programme.
The collaboration was the first from the region to receive approval from the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) earlier this year, and will launch on Monday, 24 September.Read more
