The Coronavirus challenge is bigger than anything most of us will have faced in our working lives. But the bigger the challenge, the greater are the heroes and heroines who rise to it.

We are proud at Combined Healthcare of the values of compassion and teamwork that drive what we do and who we are.  We want everyone who works for us and with us to have the opportunity to show solidarity, appreciation and gratitude for each other – for the things we do, for the extra mile we go, for the compassion we show.

We know that everyone is united in this challenge.  Frontline staff and support staff.  Staff working on our wards and people working throughout our community teams.  Permanent staff and bank.  Service users, carers and volunteers.  We are ALL in this together and we want to highlight, support and recognise everyone

Sarah Mountford for her compassionate leadership throughout challenging times.

Everyday, very early in the morning, Sarah has sent an email message of hope, encouragement or praise to the whole community learning disability team. This message has been just one of the ways Sarah has tried to reduce feelings of isolation with some members of staff working from home, keep the strong sense of team and make sure that the first email the team get that day is a positive message before they start their busy days. Staff have expressed that this has been helpful, encouraging and kept them feeling connected, in very challenging times, working with some of our most vulnerable service users.
