West Suffolk Hospital Care Awards
West Suffolk Hospital Care Awards

The first of West Suffolk Hospital’s staff to complete a new national training programme, which aims to improve standards of care across the NHS, have been recognised.

A total of 27 nursing assistants have been awarded the care certificates, with 24 receiving theirs during a celebration event last week. They are the first cohort from the hospital to complete the certificate, which was introduced by the government on April 1.

Sam Bower, deputy chief nurse at the hospital, said: “The care certificate is an important initiative which will assure everyone using West Suffolk Hospital that our nursing assistants have the right training to carry out their roles effectively.

“It gives staff who are new to the health service all the help and support they need to deliver the highest standards of patient care.”
