Remembrance Service

imageThis week we are running a ‘What the Poppy means to me’ feature across our platforms, up to and including Armistice Day on Friday 11th November, when we unite across faiths, cultures and backgrounds to remember the service and sacrifice of the Armed Forces community from Britain and the Commonwealth. 

Traditionally poppies are worn, and a two-minute silence is held at 11am. There are many veterans who work for our Trust and equally many of our patients will have served in the armed forces. We encourage any armed forces, veterans or reservists to attend in uniform at both Royal Preston Hospital and Chorley District Hospital. 

The chapel at Royal Preston Hospital holds a short act of remembrance from 10-45am, and all are welcome. 

Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday serve as a reminder of the Trust’s commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant. Earlier this year, Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust was named as one of 24 NHS Trusts to have received the highest recognition for their commitment to the Armed Forces community, achieving the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) Gold Award.
