Chief Operating Officer
I’ve taken over the message this week to share a really special video with you all. Over the summer, I reflected on the transformational changes that were made at ASPH in response to the first wave of the COVID pandemic. You’ll be aware of some of these changes as we’ve shared a number of updates in previous messages, and you may have been involved in the execution of some of them. Wards and entire departments moved within a matter of days, new services and clinics were swiftly introduced, some members of staff were redeployed to other areas of the organisation to provide support where it was needed the most, and others were required to work remotely to reduce footfall within the hospitals.
Of course these are only a few of the changes that were implemented - there were so many more and everyone did their bit to help during this time. When you look back at the volume and pace of change, it really is outstanding and I felt it was important that we recognise and record this to look back on. I also felt that our achievements should be shared by the people who made all of the changes possible, Team ASPH.
