Weekly News 28 April 2020

28 April 2020

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

COVID 19 update
Did you manage to take part in the one minute’s silence this morning? I did and I found it helpful way to step away and just reflect for a moment – not only to give thanks to NHS staff and other key workers across the country but to also remember those that are no longer with us, including our missed colleague Simon.

Trust thanks local community for support and donations

Mike Thomas, Chair, University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust (UHMBT), said: “During such difficult circumstances and when health professionals across the world are working under more pressure than ever before, the outpouring of support, kindness, generosity and well wishes from people all across Morecambe Bay has been truly heart-warming.

New blood pressure units
Sixty-eight new blood pressure units arrived on Friday 10 April which will be used to equip the new COVID-19 wards, one to six, in Medical Unit 1 at the Royal Lancaster Infirmary and the community site in the Lancaster area.
