Thank you to everyone who celebrated the Gateshead Big Tea

Posted on Wed, 07/07/2021

On Monday 5th July, the NHS turned 73 and across both QE and Bensham, staff enjoyed a well-deserved cup of tea and cake at the Gateshead Big Tea event.

After a challenging 16 months, Gateshead’s NHS health and social care have worked together to support the biggest vaccination programme in our history.

The NHS birthday this year is a significant event to honour the incredible work of our NHS staff.

QE Charitable Funds would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who got involved with the Big Tea event and to the fantastic volunteers who helped out on the day.

One of the Trust’s priorities is staff health and wellbeing and the charity would like to say a big thank you to the below teams who signed up to fundraise for the staff health and wellbeing fund.

These donations will help us continue to provide essential support services for our workforce in our fight against COVID-19 here in Gateshead.

The teams involved were:

  • Women’s Health
  • St. Bedes
  • Pharmacy
  • Procurement
  • Ward 23

A big thank you to Tesco Gateshead for supporting our #GatesheadBigTea and visiting us on Monday with a very kind donation of cakes and pastries for our staff as a thank you and to celebrate our community coming together in these unprecedented times.

Jackie Bilcliff, Acting CEO and our Executive Team wanted the 5th July to be a day to celebrate as a Trust and reflect on our journey here in Gateshead. 

As a Trust our staff has risen to the challenge, grown stronger as a team and worked extremely hard to continue to support our community in Gateshead which we should all be very proud of.

Thank you once again for the continued support for our hospital and the charity and together we will fight the COVID-19 pandemic.
