Team NHFT staff were delighted to come into work this morning to a special thank you from the Northamptonshire Highways team.
Road markings thanking the NHS and featuring a rainbow heart have been painted on the approach roads into NHFT sites across the county, including Berrywood Hospital (Northampton), Corby Community Hospital, Cynthia Spencer Hospice (Northampton), Danetre Hospital (Daventry), Isebrook Hospital (Wellingborough) and St Mary’s Hospital (Kettering).
The Northamptonshire Highways team engaged the support of specialist road markers WJ Lining and local traffic management contractor EM Pells to help them complete the artworks, which follows similar markings that appeared at Kettering General and Northampton General Hospitals last month.
NHFT’s Chief Operating Officer, Jean Knight, said, “What a fantastic surprise for our teams and services that are spread out all over the county.
"Team NHFT has continued to provide mental health and community-based services across Northamptonshire during the COVID-19 pandemic, so it is great to see this recognised with this lovely tribute to our staff. The support that we’ve received from the local community and other key workers has been brilliant and we will keep working hard to make a difference for the people of Northamptonshire.”
