To celebrate Dignity Action Day, the Trust’s practice development, chaplaincy, and equality & diversity teams held a Dignity and Faiths forum at Wexham Park Hospital.
The event, held on 1 February, was attended by staff from across the organisation and a number of local faith leaders. The day provided an opportunity for people to come together to celebrate the achievements made in the Trust during the past year and to discuss the challenges for the coming year.
Juliet Roberts, Practice Development (Privacy and Dignity) said, “The day was a real success and we have had some very positive feedback from people who attended. Building on this we will plan to develop other awareness/ training ideas. It was very helpful to have cultural and religious input from our local faith leaders and to have the opportunity to build on the links we already have with members of the local community.”
Throughout the day various presentations were given, covering topics such as dignity in dementia, spiritual care and protected mealtimes.
A “leading light” award was also presented to Healthcare Assistant Kathleen Jones considered a role model for delivering good care with thoughtfulness and respect.
Kathy said, “I am delighted to have received this award. I have always believed it was important to go that extra mile for every patient and it is nice to be recognised for this. Not only for me but for all of my colleagues who work hard at delivering first class care with compassion and dedication.”
