Why you should get involved in Claus for the Cause

10th November 2020

We spoke to Leanne Saddler, General Manager of Outpatients, about how your support could help make a difference this Christmas.

How has the Coronavirus pandemic affected your work?
I was new to the organisation just before the start of the pandemic. The situation definitely helped me bond quickly with my new colleagues, they even helped me move house so I could be closer to work. We have services across five sites, so making sure we are communicating well with everyone, whilst trying to limit travel, has been challenging.

How will donations this Christmas make a difference to you and your team?
In order to provide the best patient care, we need to have a happy and healthy workforce. Staff wellbeing and morale is a top priority for us. It’s been a difficult year for everyone but tokens of gratitude and appreciation go such a long way and really help to keep people’s spirits high. This year, lots of staff won’t be able to spend time with their families at Christmas and many of them will be working during the festive period. Christmas donations will help staff to feel appreciated and will be a nice way to look after them, while they are busy looking after our patients and their colleagues.

What you would say to those thinking about supporting?
A little really goes a long way and all donations are hugely appreciated and make such a difference.

What you would say to those who donated?
A huge thank you! We have all been so overwhelmed with the support and generosity shown to the NHS this year in particular and it really has helped us all get through some very difficult days.
