Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust has opened a wellbeing pod for staff.
On Friday 26th February 2021, Trust CEO Neil Macdonald, Chief People Officer Bridget O’Kelly and Emergency Department Sister Susana, officially opened Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust’s new wellbeing pod for staff at Stoke Mandeville Hospital.
Without the generous support of the public in fund-raising and donating to NHS Charities Together and the Trust’s charitable fund the pod would not have been possible.
The wellbeing pod is a quiet space that provides a restful and calming place for all Trust colleagues when they need time away from their busy working day. The project was commissioned by the Trust’s Occupational Health and Wellbeing team and will support the long-term wellbeing of colleagues now and post-pandemic. The pod is eco-friendly and will also commemorate the late Captain Sir Tom Moore whose astonishing charitable efforts, in aid of NHS Charities Together, funded the building.
Bridget O’Kelly, Chief People Officer for the Trust, said: ‘We’re so grateful for the fundraising efforts of Captain Sir Tom Moore and everyone who has generously donated to NHS Charities Together and the Trust’s charitable fund.
The wellbeing pod will provide our staff with a calm and quiet space to stop and take time out of their busy days.‘
