21 July 2020

This week’s edition includes lots of great news and updates from across the Trust.

Outpatient eLetters
Patients attending outpatient appointments at UHMBT will start to receive their appointment letters via SMS text message in a matter of minutes, instead of waiting for a paper copy to come through the post.

Temporary closure of Langdale Ward at Westmorland General 
UHMBT is making a temporary change to the way it provides community services at Westmorland General Hospital (WGH) in Kendal to protect the safety of patients and staff at the site. 

National People Pulse Survey
Listening and responding to your concerns is as important as ever and your health and wellbeing remains a top priority for us. That is why, in partnership with NHS England and Improvement, we are launching a new staff ‘pulse check’ which is entirely anonymous and voluntary.
