Welcome to a very special video message this week.

As you all know our CQC report was published yesterday afternoon following our press release - which you can read again here.

If you haven’t had a chance yet I would urge you all to read the full report on the CQC website. For this special video message I caught up with Medical Director, Dr David Fluck and Chief Nurse, Sue Tranka to talk through the findings of our report, the highlights and how they feel about this incredible achievement by Team ASPH!

Finally I just want to say again how incredibly proud I am and a huge thank you to everyone for their continual hard work and dedication to delivering the best care for patients.

I hope you all take some time this weekend – as I will - to celebrate this fabulous achievement.

With very best wishes,

Suzanne Rankin
Chief Executive



Each week Suzanne Rankin, our Chief Executive, sends a message to staff about events at the hospitals, special achievements, and plans for the future.

We shall be adding them to this section as well as including them on our Twitter and Facebook pages.

From time to time, we shall ask other members of the Trust Board and clinical team to give their perspective on the week in our hospitals.
