Good Luck, Tina

10,000 Feet Competition

Friday 29 June marked the end of an era on the Children’s Ward with the retirement of long- serving matron, Tina Webb. Tina has worked for the Trust for 34 years in paediatrics and been Matron for a considerable number of those years. Her hard work and dedication have been instrumental in leading our Paediatric Inpatient Service.

Theatre Practitioner Rob Tomlinson recently teamed up with art and design students from Blackburn College to design a poster for the new ’10,000 Feet’ safety initiative which has been adopted by all ELHT Theatres.

The competition attracted lots of high quality designs and it was difficult to choose the winner, student AaronWales (pictured, second right). Thanks everyone for your time and effort and we look forward to seeing the design spread the ’10,000 Feet’ message far and wide.

Bon Voyage

In May, we waved goodbye to staff who served ELHT and its patients for a combined total of 299 years. Ladies and gentlemen – enjoy your retirement, may it be long and happy.
