Clinicians strengthen links with health professionals in Gibraltar

20 Jul 2011 16:11:36

Clinical staff at The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust have been passing on valuable knowledge and skills to colleagues in Gibraltar. Clinical Nurse Manager Gizelle Tozzo recently visited the Trust from Saint Bernard’s Hospital in Gibraltar to spend time with clinical staff and learn from some of the excellent practise at Rotherham Hospital. 

Gizelle says: “Rotherham Hospital is an exemplary organisation and one we have been working closely with for many years. As part of my visit, I have spent time in Resuscitation, Outreach, with one of the Trust’s Clinical Matrons and working with the Bed Management Team to see how we can manage our beds and patient journey better. It’s good to share skills like this and I am sure there is much we can learn from each other for the good of patients in both Gibraltar and Rotherham.” 

Resuscitation Services Manager at the Trust Debra Askew says: “More than 11 years ago, the Gibraltar Health Authority asked us to provide them with their first advanced life support course. Since then, our relationship with them has developed to a point where they have adopted Rotherham as their main adviser regarding resuscitation issues and the Trust is the sole provider of all their Resuscitation Council courses. 

“More recently Rotherham outreach service has provided Gibraltar with the national recognised ‘ALERT’ TM course, which teaches healthcare staff how to anticipate, recognise and prevent critical illness at an early stage. 

“It’s great to have Gizelle here at the Trust. She has had a fairly packed schedule with us and has spent time with lots of different services. I hope her time at the Trust has been useful and hopefully she has gained further insight and information which she can take back to Gibraltar.
