Trust congratulated on top accolade

UPPER Bann DUP MLA Stephen Moutray has offered his congratulations to the Southern Health and Social Care Trust, which has been recognised as one of the top acute hospital Trusts in the UK.

Mr Moutray said: “The CHKS 40 Top Awards are awarded on the basis of performance across 23 areas including clinical effectiveness, health outcomes, efficiency, patient experience and quality of care.

“The fact that the Southern Trust has now been acknowledged in this manner is a tremendous recognition of the dedication, care and professionalism of staff.

“Staff work day by day in what are often very trying circumstances to deliver the highest possible standard of care to patients.”

“I want to congratulate everyone and thank them for the ongoing care they show to people and wish them every continued success.”
