Why we're great
Being a part of Lancashire Teaching Hospitals, in whatever capacity, means being a part of one big team. We think our staff are fantastic and are the real driving force behind making us such a great place to work, which is why we love to celebrate them at every opportunity. We also love to reward them for choosing to grow their career with us, so we ensure that all doors remain open for progression and staff are given the chance to develop their skills, learn new ones, and take on extra responsibility when they're ready to try a different challenge. Sounds pretty great, right? We think so and we know you will too!
Ward 3 mannequin donation: Our Ward 3 team have recently received a tracheostomy training mannequin & 8 writing tablets from a patient's family as thanks for their excellent care. Linda Harkin was a patient on the ward after being diagnosed with mouth cancer on the 13th of September 2016. As a thank you to the staff for the level of care her mother received, Kristy Boffey held a ladies night, raising £1400 from the sale of tickets and donations from Yorkshire Bank, Andrew Varley Financial Services, and other companies and friends and family. Kristy said: “We’ve done it because we wanted to give something back for the amazing care my Mum received during her three week stay on Ward 3, and we’re thrilled that we’ve been able to help both the staff on the ward as well as future patients with our donation today.”
