Health chiefs are celebrating after picking up another award.
Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust has been rewarded for its efforts to improve the health and wellbeing of its staff with a bronze Better Health at Work Award.
Better Health at Work is a regional award scheme which recognises workplaces that motivate workers in developing and embedding a sustainable culture of health and wellbeing.
The trust runs a number of initiatives to improve the health and wellbeing of staff including healthy lifestyle and fitness classes, a pedometer challenge, work-life balance support and weight management groups.
Ann Stringer, director of human resources and organisational development at the trust, said: “We are passionate about improving the health and wellbeing of our staff and are delighted to be recognised in this way.”
She added: “We would like to thank everyone who has contributed to our initiatives as we begin to work towards a silver award.”
