Our Hospital Heroes superstars!

The incredible work of staff at UHS were celebrated at the annual Hospital Heroes award ceremony earlier this year to recognise staff who go the extra mile for patients and colleagues.

Every year Southampton Hospital Charity has its own ‘star award’ to show our appreciation for staff who have gone the extra mile to raise money for their wards and departments.

Winners:

Eleven staff from the children’s emergency and trauma department took on an epic challenge to row from Jersey to Southampton in a 32 foot, six-oared rowing boat! By navigating one of the busiest shipping channels in the world, they raised an incredible £36,000 towards the new department.
 

Runners up:

The Southampton breast imaging unit raised £1,668 by completing the three peaks challenge to climb (and descend) Scafell Pike, Ben Nevis, and Snowdon all within 24 hours! The money will be used to create a new dedicated recover room for biopsy patients.
