Support Service News

It is just over a year since swine flu struck so this is an appropriate moment to express my gratitude to your logistics team.
Although swine flu may not have had a major impact on either the health of our population or the health services in the county, it did create a considerable amount of work for some individuals and groups of workers in the local NHS. One group that certainly had plenty of work to do were the SMHPT staff who were involved in the logistics response throughout the pandemic. From the start, when we were dealing with PPE, right through to the very end, when we were returning antivirals, the logistics team were central to the smooth running of the local response and did a superb job.
I should not, perhaps, single out any individuals but two people – Kat Mason and Dale Cobbold – were constantly mentioned by colleagues throughout the pandemic as being ‘can do’ people who were always able to respond to requests. A particular ‘thank you’ needs to go to them.
With best wishes
The Support Service is hosted by Suffolk Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust, an NHS organisation with a £90m annual turnover and a staff base of more than 2500 people
