Flu fighters and flu winners
We are now eight weeks into the flu season and we continue to clock up our vaccination numbers. More than 2,500 members of our staff have now had their jab, which is 54% of our workforce. A huge well done to you all.
There was more good news for a number of our staff - the lucky winners in our flu raffle. Everyone who had their jab before the end of October was entered into a free draw, with some great prizes on offer.
Katy Compton, a nursery nurse on Phoenix ward, took the big prize of a night for two at a top London hotel. Reaching for the stars is something Michelle Bond, senior sister, will be doing as she joins James Day, our Trust secretary, on a flight in his plane. Meanwhile, Dr Hin Zaw will be taking to the waves alongside Nick Alston, on board the chairman’s yacht.
Christine Moss, a health care assistant on Mayflower ward, has a leisurely afternoon of tea and cakes to look forward to at Channels golf club, and Hilary Smith, staff nurse, secured a brand new iPad for herself.
There were also a number of M&S voucher winners, who now have extra funds to spend.
These lucky winners were: Mary George, ward hostess; Antonio Peluso, staff nurse; Pauline Green, HCA; Margaret Wooding, administrator for procurement; Johann Jenkins, domestic assistant; Louise King, pharmacy technician; Cindy Goodman, health records clerk; Olga Stubbs, staff nurse; Lesley Graham, HCA and Joanne Wojcik, medical secretary.
Congratulations to all our winners, and a big thank you to our Trust chairman and secretary for their fantastic prizes.
