Staff across Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust (BHT) are working are extremely hard. Many are working in unfamiliar surroundings, longer shifts, extra days and are having to spend a lot of time away from home and their families to ensure we can care for our most vulnerable patients.
To provide extra support for all our staff during these challenging times at Stoke Mandeville, Wycombe, Amersham and Buckingham hospitals, as well as supporting those staff who are looking after people in their own homes, the Trust charity has launched the BHT COVID-19 Staff Wellbeing Appeal with the aim of raising £10,000.
It is hoped the money raised will allow us to provide wellbeing packs for colleagues who are unable to go home or who are working long shifts and enable us to provide comfortable areas for staff to sleep or take breaks in during the pandemic.
Trust chief executive Neil Macdonald said: "I am both humbled and overwhelmed by the generosity shown to BHT staff from the local community. People have been asking how they can help so we've set up the fund on JustGiving to enable us to coordinate donations. Thank you for continuing to support our staff during this difficult time."
Please remember that by staying at home you are saving lives, stopping the spread of coronavirus and enabling the NHS to continue to look after those who need it most.
