Staffordshire Children’s Hospital at Royal Stoke win Nursing and Midwifery award

Staffordshire Children’s Hospital at Royal Stoke – part of University Hospitals of North Midlands – has been voted as the best place to study and learn by Keele University nursing and midwifery students.

The Children’s Assessment Unit (CAU) scooped Placement of the Year at the Keele University, Nursing and Midwifery Awards.

The award is voted for by students who have been on placement and the CAU, which treats a range of medical conditions from respiratory problems, chest infections and tonsillitis, through to ear infections, gastroenteritis, poor feeding and abdominal pain, to rashes, and skin infections, came out on top

Janet Hagan, senior matron at Staffordshire Children’s Hospital at Royal Stoke, said: “We are incredibly proud of the team within the Children’s Assessment Unit, achieving the accolade of placement of the year for children’s services voted for by the students at Keele University.

“It is an exceptionally busy department that has faced so many changes and moves due to Covid-19 and the award is a testament that the challenges they have faced have not impacted on supporting and developing our workforce of the future.

“We are extremely proud of every team member and this achievement.”

The award was presented to the team at a black-tie event which was a celebration to show appreciation to the clinical teams who supported students in practice, across NHS Trusts and private, voluntary and independent organisations that are in partnership.
