I’d like to thank everyone who has been working over the festive period, caring for patients and going above and beyond to make their time in hospital as good as it can be.
I know the commitment of NHS workers over Christmas is truly recognised and appreciated and the front page of the Surrey Advertiser was testament to this - featuring ASPH ED Senior Sister Sophie Byrne along with other ‘Surrey NHS heroes’. Thank you Sophie for representing Team ASPH so well. You can read the article online here.
It’s certainly been a busy couple of weeks and great to see so many of Team ASPH getting in the festive spirit with a real sense of community and camaraderie.
We had our annual decorate-a-door competition with some amazing entries as always. I know Suzanne and Andy really enjoyed walking around the hospitals to judge the doors and chat to colleagues. The winners were announced last week – congratulations to you all! Whilst judging the doors at Ashford, Suzanne and Andy also joined some of our overseas nurses spending their first Christmas in the UK at a special Christmas party. For colleagues who are far away from home, family and friends Christmas may feel lonely, but coming together to spend time with supportive colleagues no doubt makes it a little easier.
