NDHT teams recognised in #EndPJparalysis awards

Earlier this year we took part in the national #EndPJparalysis campaign. For 70 days between April and June, we encouraged our inpatients to get up, get dressed and get moving with support from staff, helping our patients’ recovery. We asked patients to have a change of clothes and shoes brought in for them.

Our response to the challenge was fantastic, and teams across the Trust got behind the campaign, which resulted in NDHT being one of the most successful trusts in the country. In fact, our work was highlighted in the #EndPJparalysis awards and we have now received our certificates.

Although the challenge is now over, as a Trust we will be continuing the concept to reduce patients’ length of stay in hospital and improve their experience.
