East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust provides a wide range of general and specialist services and has more than 6,500 staff who work hard to ensure that all of our patients get the best possible care. We manage inpatient and maternity services at the Lister Hospital; outpatient services at Hertford Country Hospital, outpatient services and an urgent care centre at the New QEII Hospital; and cancer services at Mount Vernon Cancer Centre. Renal dialysis is provided from four satellite units. The Trust also offers community-led services for children, young people and midwifery.
Why have we joined ‘Working with’?
“It is especially exciting for us to be joining the ‘Working with’ Cavell Nurses’ Trust programme in the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife. Our vision is to deliver high-quality, compassionate care to our community and to do that, we recognise that we must care for our staff as well as our patients.
“We are proud to be one of 14 trusts in the UK to be working towards the Pathway to Excellence® accreditation. We want our nursing and midwifery colleagues to feel valued and to know that support is available to them should it be needed. We look forward to promoting the Cavell Star Awards so that nursing and midwifery staff are recognised by their peers for the exceptional work that they do each and every day.”
