Every year we encourage all our staff to get a flu jab to protect themselves, their patients and colleagues, and their friends and family.


Our annual flu campaign kicked off in October and I’m proud to be among the thousands of staff who have already been vaccinated. Last winter we vaccinated 70% of frontline staff who work directly with patients, and we are working hard to do even better this year.


In this month’s e-GiST, you can also read about our NHS rainbow badges that have been adopted by hundreds of other trusts across England, and find out how you can help shape our services.
