Gateshead Health NHS foundation Trust is committed to increase the range of physical activities that are open to staff. Posters encouraging the use of stairs will be placed next to lifts and stair ways will be clean, well lit and maintained to a good standard. The Trust will organize and promote a number of physical health initiatives each year to encourage staff to become more physically active and will support employees who want to organize events or physical activity / sports groups. Secure bike storage and showering facilities will be available for staff who cycle to work. Cycle and walking routes in the local area will be available to employees on the Health and Wellbeing intranet site.
