You grow not just with colleagues, but friends.
Even though I don’t know what’s ahead of the day or what works going to bring, I know that I’ve got a supportive team
around me that I know that I’m incapable hands of, and I know that I’m going to be supported for the workplace.
You’ll have the satisfaction when you see the patients, like, get better. It’s like a family, because you belong.
We are very successful that we recruit the vast majority of our students within our home trust and really support and develop them,
we really do care.
I’ve worked within the Gateshead QE Trust now around about ten years, and I really wouldn’t change it. I’ve not wanted to apply anywhere else.
The team is so important in Gateshead, we really look at staff development and opportunities for us to be able to really show excellent care throughout our patients time here.
There’s loads of opportunity available for the staff and it’s really nice because I’ve been here such a long time to see those people who move into what they want to do, and it’s been great to see that.
The staff are very supportive and things are happening very quickly as well there’s no lag in the system.
Medications and other health things, it comes as part of our job. So I invite people, it’s the best place to work.
There is opportunity for every single staff on the trust who wants to progress in their career.
There is something very good about this trust.
It’s the people and that’s what medicine and making them health care is all about the patients, the relatives.
It’s the desire of everybody to want to know who people are, to involve them in what’s going on in the QE.
It’s very much a family.
The importance of that is that you can get the best for your patients when everyone works as a team because without each other,
nothing will work.
We need the best nurses with the most enthusiasm, the most drive and the only way to get those nurses is to provide an environment where they feel that they’re recognized and valued through the education program that is on offer here at the QE.
