A local car dealership has loaned The Rotherham
NHS Foundation Trust a 4x4 vehicle for the eighth year in a row to use over the
Guy Salmon, based in Sheffield, recently
delivered the Land Rover Discovery which will be used by the Trust’s Estates
team. It will be used to ensure that the team can get to the hospital and keep
the grounds free from snow and ice during periods of bad weather to make sure
patients can access our services.
The Land Rover will also be on hand to
transport key members of staff into work so that they can treat patients, in
the event that there are no other forms of transport available.
Chris Tobin, Head of Estates Services at The
Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust, said: “We’re extremely grateful to Guy Salmon
for providing us with a Land Rover for the eighth year. It really is a valuable
asset during the winter months and helps us keep our services running and
ensure our hospital grounds are safe for patients, visitors and colleagues.
“Having the Land Rover available during the
winter months is also reassuring because it means we have a reliable,
alternative way of getting key colleagues into work if no other methods of
transport are available.”
Throughout winter, local people are being
reminded to choose the right care for their symptoms, helping health services
to help them stay well and treat those most in need as health services go
through an extremely busy time.
