    Update on Chester Childbirth Appeal ongoing discussions

    Being Chief Executive is a tough job, but it is the job I have chosen and want to do. You have to make decisions that aren’t always popular or well received and I am fully aware of this responsibility.

    This week the decision for Chester Childbirth Appeal to bring their coffee shop ‘in house’ to become part of the wider Countess catering team is the subject of much discussion and questioning.

    The extraordinary everyday…

    This time last week many of us at The Countess were donning our finest wares and heading to Chester Racecourse for our annual Celebration of Achievement Awards. It was an incredible evening, with many of our staff being recognised for the excellent care they provide for patients.  

    The reality is there are great things happening here at The Countess every single day.

    Talking targets and teamwork…

    Thank you to all my colleagues here at The Countess continuing to pull out all the stops to get behind our plans and arrangements to be as ready as we can be for winter. I do know how hard it is. This week it is our care of the elderly consultant and Clinical Director for Emergency Medicine Kausik Chatterjee, who has stopped us all in our tracks.  He has done a detailed piece of work reviewing a sample of case notes of Emergency Department attendances between January 2016 and October 2016.
