Celebrating the exciting and positive work being done at Surrey & Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust was on the agenda at the Trust’s Nurses Conference this week (23).
Nurses, midwives, health care assistants and students came together at East Surrey Hospital to look at the work being done across the Trust which contributes to good patient care.
Seminars and workshops were held throughout the day and focused on a variety of subjects including the patient experience, end of life care and the important role research work can play in improving patient treatment.
SASH Chief Nurse Fiona Allsop said: “The nurse’s role in the NHS is vital and this conference has been a fantastic chance for our nurses to share their successes. We have also focused on the Nursing Strategy we launched earlier this year and which we will build on in the future.”
Guest speaker Lesley Duff from the Royal College of Nursing spoke to a packed lecture theatre. The Assistant Head of Nursing (Standards, Knowledge and Information Services) said: “The profession has had a whole summer of scrutiny but this event is a great opportunity for people to see what we are doing and the great work that is going on within the Trust.”
