ED Staff Pledge Christmas Promises To Patients

13/12/2016

As ever our Emergency Department Staff are thinking of others this Christmas time.

Members of staff have created a ‘Promise Tree’ on which each staff member has made a promise to their patients after thinking hard about what they would like someone to do for them or a loved one in hospital this Christmas. Staff members have written their promise down on a Christmas bauble and hung it on the ‘Promise Tree’ which is displayed in the Emergency Department Reception.

Our dedicated staff has once again shown their compassion and understanding to all who need their care this Christmas time and all year through.
