The first episode of The Mooch is out now!

17 October 2022

You may have seen the trailers circulating on social media for a brand-new podcast we’ve been working on with Aaron Cummins, our Chief Executive called The Mooch. We’re pleased to announce that the first episode is now live!

There is a lot happening in healthcare at the moment and our Trust is made up of around 9,000 colleagues, working 24/7 across 40 sites and in the community. There is no ‘one size fits all’ method of communication for us; and we need to use as many methods as possible to speak to, listen to and engage with colleagues.

It isn’t intended to replace any of the channels we already have in place; it’s an added extra.

Podcasts are a fairly well-established method of communicating and many of you probably already have your favourites that you listen to. They are relatively low cost and most importantly, are easy to access at all times - perfect for our colleagues.

The podcast will cover everything about UHMBT's community and hospital services. We will also be inviting colleagues and partners from all areas to join Aaron and talk about what is going on in their areas and the things that really matter to them, their colleagues and their patients. ​

The first episode, which launched on 14 October, sees Aaron talk to Phil Woodford, Director of Corporate Affairs about our new Trust Strategy, car parking, and what great care actually looks like. To listen, all you need to do is search for The Mooch on your favourite podcast platform, or visit the Anchor FM website.
