Stories from our people...

Caro Daniels, community midwife

I am really enjoying being in a team where we get to know our clients and can offer them truly individualised and holistic care. I work with a great team who are always there for each other and offer support, both emotionally and practically. I feel that staff wellbeing is a priority and that the Trust is taking steps to recruit and retain midwives so that we can provide the best care for families. 

Aga Platos, business support administrator

I have attended two induction days which I loved. They were very engaging and well managed by the Learning and Education Centre team. There were speakers representing all hospital departments and I’ve met many people from all corners of the world and made some new friends. A couple of weeks later, I attended the new starter forum where we met all the executive and non-executive directors of the hospital. We had a speedy chit-chat with each of them asking all sorts of questions – funny and serious, we had lunch and lots of activities, engaging us all. 

Freshtah Weidi, pharmacist

The pharmacy team is very friendly and approachable which fosters a harmonious working environment, which is ideal for any new pharmacist entering the job.

Cherie Beckett, acting senior biomedical scientist

The work of a Biomedical Scientist really underpins the PAHT values; especially "patient-at-heart".  As a Biomedical Scientist, I seldom get to meet the patients that I care for, but they are always at the heart of all that I do and every single sample represents a patient.  I love my job because every day is different and I get such satisfaction from feeling that I can really make a difference.

Everyone offered words of such reassurance and kindness. I felt so cared for and the communication with me at all times was fantastic.
