What do you think about your local health services? Come and speak to CQC inspectors at a stall in the small atrium at The James Cook University Hospital on 1 June 12pm to 3pm.
A community nursing team who helped fulfil a patient’s wish to die at home, a nurse who organised a wedding for a terminally ill patient and another who wrote a book for siblings about their little brother or sister’s stay in the neonatal unit. These are just a few examples of care and compassion above and beyond the call of duty recognised at South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust’s annual Nightingale Awards.
Consultants and surgeons from South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust came out to support Tour de Yorkshire cyclists as they whizzed past The James Cook University Hospital on Marton Road. The Vascular and Endovascular surgery department joined forces with the trust’s Specialist Weight Management Service, The Circulation Foundation and colleagues from South Tees Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to serve up tasty and heart healthy Mediterranean treats to the crowds who came out to cheer on the cyclists.
Teesside’s biggest hospital is reminding patients that A&E doesn’t mean Absolutely Everything this Bank Holiday weekend – and minor illnesses or injuries can be treated more quickly elsewhere. The James Cook University Hospital could be even busier than usual this May Bank Holiday, as the Tour De Yorkshire event comes to Middlesbrough.
