Welcome to Weekly News
The Trust’s Weekly News ensures everyone is kept up to date and in touch with all our latest news, service developments, staff appointments and success stories from across our hospital sites. It also regularly features valuable local and national health campaign information and a range of charity initiatives and fund raising activity.
The bulletin is distributed by e-mail link to all of our 6,000 strong workforce every Tuesday, as well as being posted up on prominent notice boards throughout our sites. It is also available to key media contacts and of course for our patients and members of the public to enjoy.
