Sharing good practice worldwide

Posted on in Hospitals, Services, Staff

South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust welcomed three midwives from Ghana as part of a project involving Kybele – a non-profit humanitarian organisation dedicated to improving childbirth safety worldwide through educational partnerships.

Kybele’s role is to bring professional medical teams into host countries, to work alongside doctors and nurses in their home hospitals, to improve healthcare standards.

Fiona Bryce, clinical director for obstetrics and Kerry Morgan, risk midwife at the trust and Liz Floyd, midwife, are all involved with the Kybele project, working together with Ghana Health Service.

‘Dip’ boosts Priory ward

Posted on in Fundraising, Hospitals

Lesley Young was so impressed with the care her father received in Guisborough Primary Care Hospital that she decided to take part in the annual Boxing Day dip at Saltburn.
Before taking the body-numbing plunge into the North Sea, the mum-of-two from Skelton had asked friends and family for donations towards Priory ward where her dad Alan Thorpe had been treated following a stroke earlier in 2013. By the time Christmas had arrived there was £562 riding on her chilly dip dare.
