Dear colleagues, Despite this week’s cold snap, daylight is increasing and spring is on the way. Many of us are eagerly anticipating some easing of lockdown restrictions in the weeks ahead and the opportunities this will bring, including for children and young people to start to return to school and college. We’re now in a [...]

Dear colleagues, We’re approaching the end of another difficult and challenging month for the NHS and for CUH. This current wave of the pandemic is affecting all of us personally, in many different ways.  It is important that we acknowledge this, look after ourselves and each other, and ask for support when we need it.

Dear colleagues, This last week has been very challenging for CUH. The strain of this wave of Covid-19 is being felt by all of us and we’re having to dig deep to keep on top of a significant rise of cases in our hospitals. Over the last seven days I’ve seen the people who make [...]

Dear colleagues, Before Christmas I reflected on the strength of our response to the first wave of Covid-19 and our outstanding outcomes. I also focussed on the superb work you all led in our recovery of all services and the thousands of patients who received care as a result. I explained our pre-emptive decision to [...]

Dear Colleagues, We’re approaching a Christmas unlike any we’ve experienced in recent times. The strengthening of the tier system and rising community transmission of Covid-19 sends a signal that the Covid pandemic is far from over. At the same time the long nights and cold temperatures of winter make the necessary restrictions on how we [...]

Dear colleagues, I write this in the middle of the country’s second lockdown. Once again, our daily lives have had to be restricted to prevent the rising transmission of coronavirus in communities across the country. Things feel different this time. There is slightly more freedom than before and our children can still go to their [...]

Update on Addenbrooke’s 3 and our major capital projects Dear colleagues, At the end of last week, a Government statement was made on 40 new hospital builds that were announced last year as part of the Hospital Infrastructure Programme (HIP2). A major redevelopment of Addenbrooke’s was included in HIP2 with Cambridge Children’s being funded separately [...]

Dear colleagues, As we experience more typically autumnal weather we focus ever more intently on preparing for winter. For working parents, the re-opening of schools and universities this month brings some relief from home schooling, but I think many of us are wondering how to manage sporadic periods of isolation if they occur. Among CUH [...]

Dear colleagues, As we approach the end of the academic year in schools, many of us are feeling the consequences of the coronavirus pandemic for our children, grandchildren, nephews, nieces and friends. Many have missed proms, graduations, important times at university and other rites of passage that they will never be able to go back [...]

Dear colleagues, It is hard to believe that we have now entered the second half of the year 2020. For the last few weeks we’ve been moving through a transition period where at home we’re coming out of lockdown, and at work we’re facing up to a hospital that is completely changed as a result [...]
