Our annual flu campaign has kicked-off with a kung-flu fighting theme.
Everyone who works for the Trust is being offered the jab to fight flu to protect patients, carers, colleagues, their own families and of course themselves.
Over 800 members of staff have already had their flu jab, including Medical Director Dr. Alex Lewis and Deputy Director of Infection Prevention and Control, Rebecca Stretch.
Dr Lewis, said:
“Here at CNWL we put patients first, so it’s extremely important that all of our staff are have their flu jab. Our motto is ‘wellbeing for life’ and that’s exactly what we provide. Patient safety is our priority.”
Rebecca, who has recently returned from Sierra Leone where she was training staff to stop the spread of Ebola, said:
“We are so fortunate to be able to be immunised from a virus such as flu. We are giving all of our staff the opportunity to get their jab to stop the virus in its tracks. Although vulnerable members of society are offered the jab, we cannot guarantee that they’ve had it, so we’re doing all we can to protect them.”
