Tree tribute to popular nurse Julie

Posted on in Staff

Family, friends and colleagues have planted a loving tribute to Middlesbrough nurse Julie Jones.

Julie passed away in November last year at the age of 51 after losing her battle with breast cancer, but the memory of her bubbly and always positive personality will not be forgotten after her family planted a magnolia tree in the garden of the Carter Bequest Hospital in Middlesbrough.

Clinical scientists enhance lifesaving research

Posted on in Research

Experts at The James Cook University Hospital have assisted a military research programme by developing a unique tool that could help save the lives of those suffering from severe blood loss. Clinical scientists within the Middlesbrough hospital’s medical physics team came up with a way to attach a lower body suction machine to a standard physiotherapy tilt table to enable a collaboration with research teams at Durham University to safely simulate shock on a battlefield so they can monitor the body’s reaction to blood loss.
