The day is celebrated across the UK and is a chance to support the heroic men and women of the NHS and emergency services. But the day also gives us the opportunity to remember colleagues who are sadly no longer with us.
At 9 am this morning we held a flag-raising ceremony at our HQ in Bolton. CEO Daren Mochrie raised the flag and led the two minutes’ silence to remember the #TeamNWAS members and all our colleagues across the emergency services who have passed away. Director of Operations Ged Blezard was also present as well as a small number of colleagues who wanted to pay their respects. Other sites across the entire trust will also be flying the emergency services flag today.
