Congratulations to the children’s ward at the University Hospital of North Tees who are the winners of the team of the month award.
Director of finance Caroline Trevena visited the team today to present them with flowers (donated by the Flower Shop in Yarm) a certificate and cake.
Claire said: “I wanted to say a huge thank you to all the staff on the children’s ward, they are amazing!
“My five day old daughter, Bea, was admitted with jaundice levels well above 400, The kindness your staff instantly showed me and my partner was invaluable. I was an emotional mess and was instantly made to feel safe and calm.
“We had a rough few days but with support from all the staff and a few special ones we managed to get through it.
“I work as Communications Lead at the trust and I’m extremely proud to work for a trust with such dedicated and kind staff, it was a privilege to see.
“I’d like to especially say thank you to Caroline, Heather, Rachael, Janice and Angie (who cried almost as much as me), these wonderful women hugged me when I needed it, fed me toast, made me, my partner and mam feel at ease and like nothing was too much trouble for Bea. I can’t thank them enough.”
