Healthcare assistant celebratory event held at Poole Hospital

The invaluable contribution that healthcare assistants and support workers play at Poole Hospital has been recognised in a special celebratory event.

The event focused on the vital role of healthcare assistants, maternity care assistants and theatre support workers who provide direct patient care across all wards and departments.

It was an opportunity to thank these staff all for the work that they do across the hospital as well as distributing information on healthcare apprenticeships and career progression.

More than 70 staff attended the 1 November event and free goody bags with a thank you poem and a variety of treats inside were available.  HCA Day 1 November 2017

There was also a raffle with the winner receiving a hamper full of prizes including a bottle of champagne, confectionary and pampering cosmetics.

Stands and tables of information from the 243 Wessex Field Hospital, Care first, NHS East Dorset Library & Knowledge Service and Riverford Organic Farmers were also at the event.

Chief executive Debbie Fleming thanked all the healthcare assistants, maternity care assistants and support workers across the trust for the vital role they continue to play.

“Our healthcare assistants are brilliant,” she said.

“They connect with our patients and make them feel safe, welcome and comfortable when they are in our care. 

““The board, the executive team, their colleagues and of course, their patients, all appreciate everything they do.

“The event was a great way to highlight their valuable contributions while also publicising the career development opportunities available to them at Poole Hospital.”

Poole Hospital has a healthcare assistant recruitment day on 14 December. If you’re interested in attending, you can apply for the role at NHS Jobs.
