Welcome to the latest update about Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

These regular bulletins have been designed to update on what’s been happening across the Trust. In this edition you can read about a new Cardio and Respiratory Diagnostic Suite which was opened at Woking Community Hospital last month, some inspiring new artwork gifted to the Cardiology Department and how a donation to the Little Roo Neonatal Fund will make a difference to tiny lives.

 

New suite opens as part of diagnostic centre development in Woking

A new Cardio and Respiratory Diagnostic Suite opened on Thursday 16 May at Woking Community Hospital and will provide high-quality care in a vibrant and modern facility for people living in North West Surrey. The new suite is the initial part of the multiphased expansion of the Community Diagnostic Centre (CDC) development at Woking Community Hospital, led by the North West Surrey Alliance, in partnership with Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, CSH Surrey, primary care and partners operating out of Woking Community Hospital. Tom Smerdon, Director of Strategy and Sustainability at Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals, said: “We were delighted to have Rotary in Woking and The Friends of Woking Community Hospital join us to celebrate the opening of this new suite. Both charities have played key roles in supporting the development, alongside our Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals’ Charity.’’

New Artwork for Cardiology

 

New Artwork for Cardiology

A new piece of artwork in the Cardiology Department at St Peter’s Hospital is helping to improve the waiting area for patients, their families and staff. On Wednesday 15 May, artist Jeff Schmidt unveiled his artwork which included a vinyl designed by the artist and a Kintsukuroi inspired ceramic heart. Kintsukuroi is the Japanese art of repairing a once broken item with gold. The artwork was commissioned with funding generously donated by ICDC Surrey, a patient support group for those who have had an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator and delivered as part of the Trust’s Healing Arts programme.

 

Frimley Health Charity Donate £4k to Little Roo Neonatal Fund

Earlier this year, St Peter’s Hospital’s Little Roo Neonatal Fund approached local Trusts to request their support in contributing to the purchase of a new milk pasteuriser for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit’s (NICU) human milk bank. The request was sent to Trusts which benefit from the valuable service the NICU milk bank provides; ensuring that the most vulnerable infants in Surrey and beyond have access to human milk when their mother’s milk is not available or not enough to meet their needs. As a result, Frimley Health Charity very kindly donated £4,000 towards purchasing a new milk pasteuriser, which has cost in the region of £25,000 to replace and will arrive later this year.

Celebrating Volunteers’ Week 2024

Over 60 of the Trust’s 300 volunteers gathered together in the Education Centre on 5 June and were treated to party food and drinks to thank them for their invaluable service to the Trust. Members of the Executive Team joined them to chat about their roles and to thank them in person. Simon Marshall, Director of Finance said: “It is fantastic to be celebrating our volunteers during this year’s Volunteers’ Week. They deserve a big round of applause for their dedication and collective efforts and it was our pleasure to invite them today and recognise their hard work.”
