Alder Hey welcomes Chief Nursing Officer

30th Jul 2021

Alder Hey was really pleased to welcome Ruth May and team CNO to the Trust this week. Ruth is the Chief Nursing Officer for England and also the lead for children and young people.

She was able to spend some time talking about COVID and RSV with our ITU, HDU and theatres staff, and was able to really understand the ED pressures, challenges and changes we have made to the ED team.

Some of our fantastic young people from the CAMHELIONS were able to give real insight to how they have been impacted by the pandemic and also share some of the amazing work they came together to do to support CYP and shared with NHSE.

Our crisis care and SALs team spent time explaining the work they have done and some of the positive contributions they have made towards staff and patient wellbeing.

Three members of staff were presented with sliver awards for exceptional contributions to nursing by Ruth including Alison Fellows from Critical Care, Joanne Kendrick from Ward 3C and Raji Thomas from PICU.

Ruth really enjoyed looking around Alder Hey and said she’ll definitely be coming back for another visit after Sunflower House opens.

Our Chief Nurse, Nathan Askew said “It was a great opportunity today to share some of the amazing work of the staff at Alder Hey with our chief nurse for England.  Ruth was blown away by the care, compassion and dedication of all our staff and the passion shared by our young people.  I am so proud of all the staff involved and especially thankful to Emily, Jack and Niamh for taking the time to give real insight into the impact of the pandemic on children and young people.  

I am so proud of the work of all our nurses and support workers and it was an honour to share this with Ruth”.
