A big thank you from us

09 April 2020

In the last few weeks we’ve been overwhelmed by the outpouring of goodwill messages, donations and support we’ve received from all corners of the London community.

In the last few weeks we’ve been overwhelmed by the outpouring of goodwill messages, donations and support we’ve received from all corners of the London community.

From lovely rainbow coloured cards to beautiful handwritten notes to staff with encouraging words, we’ve also received an incredible response to our charity CW+’s COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund.

The fund has been set up to help our staff provide the best possible care during the COVID-19 outbreak across our communities. The new fund is supporting our hospitals in three key areas: 

• New equipment
• New technology
• Support for frontline staff

Along with purchasing new equipment and technology for our staff and patients, support for this fund has enabled CW+ to set up dedicated staff health and wellbeing hubs at both sites. These tranquil spaces are open to our staff 24 hours a day and provide staff with a relaxing place to recharge throughout their day with sleep pods, refreshments, yoga, activities and complimentary toiletries.

It’s boosted morale and kept us all going in these challenging times.

A huge number of local companies and businesses have also offered incredible support to our staff by donating free meals, food, drinks, toiletries and much more. 

We are very proud of all of our staff, both frontline and those who are behind-the-scenes for supporting, doing their best and caring for the community. The response locally has highlighted the tremendous generosity and kindness of the people in our surrounding communities.

So a big thank you from us—please continue to Stay Home, Save Lives and Protect the NHS.
