70 Facts, 70 Days

In the run up to the official Birthday in July, we're posting a fun fact about our trust on Twitter for 70 days. 

 

Here's a snippet of our Tweets:

  • Did you know…we could fill 119 double decker buses with the number of patients we see on an average week at our Walk-in Centre.
  • Between Oct-Dec 2017 our Cheshire East 0-19 Service vaccinated over 15,500 children against Flu. That’s enough children to fill Crewe Alexander Football Ground over 1.5 times.
  • Over a 12 month period we’ve ordered enough alcohol hand rub to fill 6 bath tubs! That’s 482 litres of alcohol hand rub. 
  • Did you know the average person swallows 600 times per day and produces about 2.5 bathtubs full of saliva in a year!
  • Over the last 12 months there have been more than 2000 feet wandering the streets of Wirral wearing our bespoke podiatry insoles…

Tea parties

Save the date...Happy 70th Birthday NHS

 

With the NHS turning 70 on Thursday 5 July 2018 we'd like to invite you to our celebratory tea party event.

 

The NHS has touched us all and we would like you to get involved in its celebrations.

 

The NHS Big 7Tea party event is a chance for people across Wirral to come together to celebrate 70 years of the NHS, raise a cuppa and enjoy a cake. It’s also the perfect opportunity to celebrate its achievements, to appreciate the vital role the NHS plays in all of our lives, and to recognise and thank the extraordinary staff - the everyday heroes who are there to guide, support and care for us, day in, day out.

 

The free tea party event will be held at St Catherine’s Health Centre, Derby Road and you can drop in any time from 1.00pm - 4.00pm for a cuppa and a cake.

 

Wirral born Olympic field hockey player, Sam Quek, will also be at the event to announce the winners and runners up of the children’s Let’s Get Creative poster competition. 

 

What a great way to mark the NHS’s 70th birthday! Put the date in your diary and get ready to raise a cuppa, provided by Typhoo Tea, to the NHS.
