Recognising our fantastic colleagues
Each month hundreds of colleagues are nominated for our South Tees Appreciation Reports – known as STARs. The STARs Awards help us celebrate the individuals, teams and services that deliver outstanding patient care or go the extra mile in their job.
Our support network groups provide a forum in which issues that matter to colleagues are raised and cascaded for action through to the equality diversity and inclusion (EDI) strategy group. They enable individuals to come together, to share ideas, raise awareness of challenges and provide support to each other.
Health and wellbeing
We have an in house occupational health service which is there for colleagues to access to seek support across a range of areas such as mental health and physiotherapy. We also have dedicated staff psychologists alongside wellbeing coordinators to support colleagues and deliver psychological first-aid and empathetic listening.
Education training and development
As a clinically-led organisation, the safety and wellbeing of our patients, service users and colleagues, underpinned by the quality of the care we provide, is at the heart of what we do.
Our Leadership and Safety Academy is clinically-led and brings together training and education, clinical leadership, improvement and safety in to one support function for a common purpose.
The academy encompasses our patient safety faculty and utilises existing teams and experience to provide a range of support to specialties and departments, including leadership and management training, quality improvement skills, team and service support, coaching and human factors training.
Our special partnership with the armed forces
We are proud of our strong ties with the Armed Forces as one of the nation’s seven Ministry of Defence hospital units.
