Estates and Facilities team scoop Team of the Month Award

The Estates and Facilities team has scooped the Team of the Month Award in recognition of their amazing response to a significant water leak in the West Building in May when water poured into Wards 80 & 81. The successful collaborative working arrangements and patients first approach, which is the culture of this team, saw them respond swiftly and professionally to ensure patients and staff were safe.

The team demonstrated enormous resilience in dealing with an extreme situation and ensured that damage was limited and ward unavailability minimised to reduce the impact on patient care. The team worked collectively with Sodexo both day and night to ensure that the works were completed in just three days.

Helen Ashley, Deputy Chief Executive, said: “If you had not responded in the way you did, working together and the speed of your response, the damage to the West Building would have been far greater that in was which would have had a huge impact on patient care. A massive thank you to you all for coming together, responding to a crisis and minimising the impact on the building, services and our patients. Thank you!”
