Following last week’s celebration of Nurses Day, several teams from across Medicine have been awarded by peers for their amazing efforts in promoting and celebrating the event within wards and departments and also across social media.
The first RCHT Band 5 Nurse Celebration Conference took place at the Knowledge Spa this week. Around 60 Band 5 nurses attended the action packed day, which offered a full agenda of inspirational speakers; lots of fun and the opportunity to network, share experience and learn about innovative projects throughout the Trust.
Last October the go-live of a new inventory management system in the Royal Cornwall Hospital’s cardiac catheter laboratories, marked the first step in the transformation of how the Trust manages inventory as part of the Scan4Safety Programme.
Louise Moffitt and Luke Chapman are leading the way at RCHT as the first nurses to undergo a new accelerated, seven month training programme. Once qualified, they will be Clinical Endoscopists, running their own Endoscopy lists.
