Messages for loved ones and keeping in touch

During your stay in hospital you will meet a number of different members of staff.  All members of staff wear name badges, but if you are not sure who someone is or what they do, please feel free to ask them to introduce themselves and explain what they do. 

If you have any questions about your treatment, please ask a doctor or a nurse.

There are lots of opportunities for you to get involved with the Trust, from volunteering to attending our public meetings, our Annual General Meeting or our hospital open day which is held every year.

EDIT - newsletter

Last updated: 24 February 2022

EDIT - Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Talk

Want to find out more about what our staff networks get up to?

Welcome to EDIT (Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Talk).

The quarterly newsletter put together by our network chairs will feature stories on network members and events, a catch up on the projects they have been working on, highlight opportunities for training and education and signpost to internal and external support.

DisAbility Staff Network co chair and anaemia nurse specialist Louise Bird said: "This newsletter is something that all of the network chairs and equality, diversity and inclusion team were passionate about putting together.

"We hope that it will give a deeper insight into what the networks, which welcome everyone including allies, do to influence change with new projects and programmes that support our colleagues and our patients.

 “Everyone has different ideas, thoughts and opinions so everyone brings something to the table and we want to make sure everyone has a seat."
