We are very proud that in recent staff surveys the numbers of staff who would recommend us as a place to work are some of the highest figures in the country.
We are even more proud of the feedback we get about our staff from families and young people:
“The whole atmosphere and friendliness of the ward and staff was excellent. Superb care. Nothing too much trouble! Thank you.”
“The staff here are phenomenal, everyone was friendly and pleasant.”
“I can’t commend the staff enough, from the domestic right through to the consultants, an outstanding team.”
