The spring edition of @CLCH, the Trust’s magazine for members, patients and the communities in which we work, is now available via our website.
It’s packed with interesting articles featuring staff stories, a patient story and general news about other activities, such as non-emergency transport.
Sharon Douglas, one of our district nursing locality leads, spells out the difference her team makes to the lives of patients: “We provide expert care and treatment in the patient’s home which gives them greater independence. This, alongside better education about some small things they can do to protect their own health, can help keep them out of hospital.”
One of our patients tells us about her positive experience of our physiotherapy service based in Finchley: “I was treated with compassion, dignity and respect… this service helped me tremendously, I would definitely recommend them to my friends and family.”
Community staff nurse, Doreender Osei, describes how CLCH has helped build her career: “I’ve had some fantastic support from my line managers and our learning team – they really motivated me to extend my knowledge and skills.”
Kendra Rochester, a practice educator for apprentice nurses, talks about ‘Speaking Out’, where nurses are supported to speak out if something goes wrong at work, or home. “We are bringing nurses together and encouraging them to be open about any issue that might affect their own work satisfaction and team work – as well as patient safety.”
It's a great read – check it out now.
