24 Hours

A mini-series that showcases and celebrates the people providing the care. Watch it on "View" our new media player found on the intranet home page.

Every single day and around the clock our staff and teams deliver great care and we’re taking a unique look at the people who make our services great. The first area featured in our exciting new project is Maternity services.

This project has been created by our in-house Blended Learning Team and the Leadership and Organisational Development team and the aim is to create a feel good factor in the organisation and help create more awareness about the different types of roles in our organisation. The NHS and our organisation is facing increasing demand on its services and it is easy to lose sight of the positive difference we're making on a daily basis. We also don’t always take time to recognise or celebrate all the great things we do.

We hope that this will create a bit of a feel good factor in the organisation, show how we are all part of the same team and also give a unique insight into our organisation for those considering working here.
