Suzanne said: "Our nurses, midwives, allied health professionals, support workers and students work really hard day in, day out and I am proud to be part of this amazing team. I cannot wait to celebrate the achievements that we have made over the last year and share those key successes that we have had. It’s a great opportunity and also time to reflect and highlight the good work that is being done by our staff across the Trust.
