Staff “excellence, commitment and passion” are being celebrated in a brand new social media video series which has been launched by St Andrew’s Healthcare.

Word from the Ward puts staff in the starring role within each video, so they can showcase what they do when at work.

Launched by the Communications team, it is hoped the series, which will be released on a weekly basis across all the St Andrew’s Healthcare social media platforms, will also help boost recruitment, while lifting the lid on some of the services that the charity hospital provides.

External Communications Manager Fiona Bailey, who has already produced several of the short films, said: “We wanted to find a way to celebrate our amazing staff and everything they do. Also, it’s a great way to find out what people do within certain roles.

“So far I’ve interviewed Healthcare Assistants, Occupational Therapists, Nurses, Nurse Managers and Psychiatrists and they’ve all given me an insight into what they do, and more importantly why they do it. Word from the Ward is a great way to celebrate our staff’s excellent, commitment and passion, and anyone who wants to take part should get in touch and we will make it happen.”

Each film has been edited so it is short and snappy, encapsulating the person, their role and their love for the job.

A new video will be posted on a weekly basis so all staff are encouraged to follow St Andrew’s Healthcare on all social media platforms so they can view each film and support their colleagues.
