Children’s Ward claims best dressed Christmas tree award 24 December 2007

The annual Best Dressed Christmas Tree competition at Noble’s Hospital was won by Children’s Ward this year. Sixteen entries were judged by Mrs Ros Richmond, Parents and Public representative, and Ms Bev Critchlow, Director of Nursing, Midwifery and Professional Development.

Bev Critchlow said,

“We are so pleased for Children’s Ward. The Children’s Ward staff put a massive effort in to ensure the Ward is like a Santa’s Grotto for the children this Christmas. It is always difficult that some children have to be in Hospital at this time of year and we want to make it as special as we can for them and their families.”

Mrs Richmond, who presented the award to Children’s Ward said,

“The staff at the Hospital have put so much effort in to ensure that all the Wards look festive for the patients and their families. It was extremely difficult to choose the winner, as the standard was extremely high this year.”

Three highly commended awards were given to Blood Clinic, Radiology and the Diabetes Centre, who’s Christmas tree was decorated to promote health to patients visiting the Centre.
