My story

[p]I started working in Newham in April 2017 and I really believe in the staff that work here. [/p][p]I want to contribute to the charity fund to help with the little things that will have a major impact on patient and staff experience. [/p][p]I started running in March 2017 and in the coming[/p][p]year I want to run and fundraise for the Newham Hospital family.

It incorporates[/p][p]five hospitals in East London and the City (Whipps Cross, [b]Newham[/b], The Royal London, St Bartholomew's and Mile End) and is committed to delivering high quality and effective patient care to a diverse population of 2.5 million people who rely on it for both general and highly specialist services.

These services reach beyond the Trust’s hospitals to provide care where it is needed most: at home, in local neighbourhoods or in special facilities across the area. Outstanding research, learning and development and a commitment to safety, quality and innovation will allow Barts Health to transform the health of the population and substantially reduce the significant inequalities in health which are prevalent in east London.[/p][p]We are the biggest NHS teaching trust in the country, and our challenges are those of a large and complex organisation. We aim for each setting to be a centre of excellence and innovation providing safe and compassionate care.
