Remembering our colleagues

Story posted/last updated: 29 September 2021

"The death of a colleague is always tragic and losing so many committed colleagues during these very challenging times is both devastating and heart-breaking. Each colleague who has sadly passed away represents an irreplaceable gap for family, friends and the workplace which we would like to acknowledge." - Cherry West, Director of Transformation

On Saturday 18 September, the Trust held four intimate memorial services in memory of the staff who have died during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Each service was held at exactly the same time on each of our four hospital sites, with the families and close team mates of the colleagues who have died personally invited to attend.

A chaplain led the service at each site, which incorporated the planting of a blossom tree, as well as poems, readings and special words of thanks from our Board of Directors.

Representatives from the Executive, Inclusion and Wellbeing and nursing teams were also in attendance.

A montage video of the four services is now available for you to view.

You can also find out where the blossom tree is planted at each hospital on the maps below, which have been marked with a blossom flower.
