Barry Reagan, Security Manager accepts the Defender’s keys from Guy Salmon’s Margaret Evans-Gili
For the fifth year in a row, Sheffield based car dealer Guy Salmon has loaned The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust a Land Rover Defender 110 XS Station Wagon to use over Winter.
The Land Rover will be on hand to transport the Trust’s estates teams to keep grounds risk free for patients and visitors over the winter months. The vehicle, as and where appropriate, will also play an important role in assisting emergency staff to work so that they can treat patients, when there are no other forms of transport available. For example, if roads are impassable by other vehicles due to bad weather.
John Cartwright, Director of Estates and Facilities at TRFT, commented: “Once again we’re extremely thankful to the team at Guy Salmon for their support. Their generosity will help us to keep services running and assist us in keeping our grounds safe.”
Throughout Winter it’s more important than ever that people locally support health services by ensuring that they use them appropriately. Those with minor or non-urgent ailments like coughs, colds or flu-like symptoms should see a pharmacist, get advice by calling NHS 111 or visit the walk in centre based within Rotherham Community Health Centre on Greasbrough Road or call your GP practice for advice.
