COVID-19 staff wellbeing appeal
Our colleagues trustwide continue to work extremely hard. Over the last year, at the height of the pandemic, many were working in unfamiliar surroundings, longer shifts, extra days and had to to spend a lot of time away from home and their families to ensure we could care for our most vulnerable patients.
To provide extra support for all our staff during these challenging times at Stoke Mandeville, Wycombe, Amersham and Buckingham hospitals, as well as supporting those staff who are looking after people in their own homes, the Trust charity launched the BHT COVID-19 Staff Wellbeing Appeal.
To date the money raised has allowed us to provide wellbeing packs for colleagues unable to go home or who needed to work long shifts and has enabled us to provide comfortable areas for staff to sleep or take breaks in during the pandemic.
Trust chief executive Neil Macdonald said: “I am both humbled and overwhelmed by the generosity shown to BHT staff from the local community. People have been asking how they can help so we’ve set up the fund on JustGiving to enable us to coordinate donations. Thank you for continuing to support our staff during this difficult time.”
