Celebrating our Shining Stars

Yesterday afternoon I was delighted to join Aileen McLeish, my Executive and Board colleagues to host our annual Staff Achievement Awards at Oatlands Park in Weybridge.

Thank you for all the extra work you have put into these plans and my thanks to all those of you who are working at some point over the weekend too.

Chief Executive's Message

On a regular basis, our Chief Executive sends a message to staff about events at the hospitals, special achievements, and plans for the future.

We shall be adding them to this section as well as including them on our Twitter and Facebook pages.

From time to time, we shall ask other members of the Trust Board and clinical team to give their perspective on the week in our hospitals.
