Guy Salmon helps keep Rotherham people safe this winter

With winter upon us and temperatures set to drop over the coming weeks and months, The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust’s (TRFT) estate teams is prepared and is busy making sure that footpaths and roadways around its sites are clear from ice and that chances of slips and falls are reduced.

TRFT’s estates team’s priority is to keep visitors safe and once again this year, the estates team has been helped along by generous Sheffield car dealer, Guy Salmon.

For the fourth year in a row, Guy Salmon, based on Savile Street in Sheffield, has loaned the Trust a Land Rover Defender 110 XS Station Wagon which will play an important role in assisting the estates teams to keep Trust grounds risk free for patients and visitors over the winter months.

John Cartwright, Director of Estates and Facilities at TRFT, commented: “Each winter, the Trust works extra hard to keep those visiting us during bad weather safe and we are very thankful to Guy Salmon for this huge gesture of support.

“I’m very proud of the work our teams do and I know that their job is made that much easier by the support of Guy Salmon and the Land Rover - I really can’t thank them enough for their continued generosity.”

The Land Rover will also be on hand throughout the winter period to transport emergency staff, when there are no other forms of transport available. For example, if roads are impassable by other vehicles due to bad weather.

Mike Tyson, Managing Director of Guy Salmon in Sheffield, said: “We are delighted and proud to continue our partnership with TRFT. This is also an opportunity to continue to support our own policy of ‘Giving Something Back’.”

Alongside the NHS Rotherham Clinical Commissioning Group and other local partners, the Trust is also encouraging and advising local people where to access the right care in a non-emergency situation. For example, those feeling unwell can visit their local pharmacy or call the NHS 111 phone line to get quick help.
