Attendees heard on the night of Tuesday 29 September how performance at Wexham Park Hospital, in particular, was turning around and Frimley Park Hospital continued to give excellent results for patients.

Chief executive Sir Andrew Morris and chairman Sir Mike Aaronson shared the latest news about multi-million pound investments, including a new emergency department and maternity wing. They reported on other ambitious plans for the future, and described how far the trust has come in the past year.

Guests also enjoyed a series of showcase exhibitions, including:

  • The 'Veinsite' headset - a special piece of equipment that uses infra-red light to show up superficial veins for when patients need to have medication administered via a tube (cannula) directly into their veins on multiple occasions
  • Simulation manikins - used to train medical and nursing staff in a multitude of different medical and surgicall scenarios, plus special effects make-up to create realistic and clinically accurate wounds
  • The empathy suit - designed to emulate many age-related conditions and used during training to enable staff to experience the challenges some elderly people face every day

 

There was also a presentation by the cancer team about cancer care at Frimley Health.
