Staff profiles: going the extra mile during the Coronavirus pandemic


We are so proud of our staff! During the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic they have demonstrated again and again just how innovative, hard-working and professional they are. The way in which staff have supported each other while always putting our patients first, and the positive ‘can-do’ they have maintained is a credit to them all.

Here are some of the ways in which our staff have gone above and beyond their normal roles and duties and embraced new ways of working.
