Today, Wednesday 21 June 2023, is National Healthcare Estates and Facilities Day.

A huge thank you to each individual and our PFI colleagues for their continued hard work and commitment to delivering award winning estates, facilities and procurement services across our Trust.

We would also like to congratulate Carol Birch on her most recent achievement of working 40 years within the NHS, starting out as an assistant cook working her way through the ranks in Facilities to her current position of Associate Director of Facilities where she is responsible for more than 350 members of staff across numerous services including; domestic, portering, catering, transport, switchboard, helpdesk, car parking and CELL.

Carol has recently been awarded with three awards, all judged by three separate judging panels and the most recent award being the HefmA (Health, Estates & Facilities Management Association) Outstanding Achievement Award.

Carol's achievements really showcase the opportunities available to every individual within Estates and Facilities.

Congratulations and thank you Carol.

'Care received was fantastic and I was very well looked after and very impressed.'
