Wards Win Prizes for Most #FluFighters

Cherry Ward

Every year our Occupational Health Department run a staff flu vaccination campaign to help protect our patients, staff and their families. It is extremely important that staff have the vaccination as many of our patients are in the vulnerable groups such as those who are 65 and over, pregnant women, children or adults with an underlying health condition or weakened immune systems.

This year is was decided to run a little competition to see which ward could achieve the greatest number of #flusafe staff. We are pleased to announce that the winning ward was Cherry who achieved an amazing 83% of staff receiving their #flujab. Spruce Ward also achieved a remarkable 82.5% so it was decided that as these were so close a second place would be awarded. Both wards received their prize of a hamper of goodies from Andy Brown, Director of Human Resources.

Congratulations to both wards on such a wonderful achievement.
