Our theatres teams have installed their own "Pledge Trees" promising to deliver only the very best care by them all.
The stick-on trees dominate the reception areas and are proving a real source of reassurance and a distraction to our patients who are on their way for surgery.
HRI's domestic Mary (mop) Phillips pledged tea and toast when they come round. A few more of the touching pledges placed on the trees are attached below.
The idea took root after Lynn Penson attended a Band 6 development day and the success of similar pledge trees on our wards with patients with dementia were high-lighted. And rightly, Lynn thought they could transfer to theatres.
Her pledge says: "I pledge to be empathetic and spend time listening without judgement."
