Welcome from

Dame Jackie Daniel

CEO, Newcastle Upon Tyne
Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

Welcome to my new blog where I will be sharing my fortnightly message, which is
shared with all Newcastle Hospitals staff. I started my fortnightly briefings shortly
after joining the Trust, and have been relying on sending these briefings via email to staff
until my blog was up and running.

My blog also gives me the opportunity to highlight and recognise some of the
amazing achievements of our staff and initiatives that are ongoing to continually
improve the care we deliver to our patients.

My blog is also shared on my Twitter: @JackieDanielNHS
where you will also find out more about what is happening day-to-day at the Trust.

If you would like to see something in particular in my blog, or would like to give
some feedback, please get in touch by emailing:
