South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust was one of the first trusts to take part in Schwartz rounds – now more than 100 organisations are signed up to them.
South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is joining a massive social media movement launched by a terminally ill doctor to boost compassionate care. The ‘Hello my name is…’ campaign was spearheaded by Dr Kate Granger, a young hospital consultant from Yorkshire who became frustrated with the number of staff who failed to introduce themselves to her when she was in hospital.
Critical care staff at South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust are continuing to step up their fight against sepsis, which claims 37,000 lives in the UK every year. Staff hosted an event in the atrium at The James Cook University Hospital on International World Sepsis Day (12 September 2014) to raise awareness about this life-threatening condition.
Visitors to The James Cook University Hospital could have been forgiven for doing a double take when trolley loads of artificial arms and legs were wheeled out across the car park for a good cause. More than 70 unwanted prosthetic limbs from the disablement services centre were piled into the back of cars to help transform the lives of amputees in Africa.
