Staff welfare and amenities

The charity has been funding “the Health and Wellbeing project” which is achieving benefits to staff morale and health through the provision of counselling and physiotherapy programmes.

The charity has supported activities aimed at improving individual and team morale, through Trust-wide and departmental staff awards for excellent patient care. The charity also funds long service awards to staff.

New Recruit Finder’s Fee Vouchers Programme; an incentive to staff members to promote the Trust as an employer by introducing staff into vacant or hard to recruit posts. The vouchers would only be payable upon successful recruitment of an individual and is consistent with many private sector organisations who offer new recruit introduction fees to staff .This serves as an additional method of recruiting staff to the organisation, supporting our people strategy in wishing to be an employer of choice as well as engaging with staff to recommend the Trust as a place to work. 

Training and education

The charity plays a significant role in the development of the staff within the NHS Trust. Support is provided to a variety of activities including conferences, workshops and individual training. Support has both enhanced broad personal development and has improved skills directly related to patient care. Some of these training sessions include:
