Written by on 27 February 2024

A healthcare assistant whose quick thinking helped save the life of a distressed member of the public has been praised for his actions.  Mick Hibbs was on his way into work at Royal Stoke’s A&E Department when he spotted a gentleman in distress on a bridge, and Despite not being able to reach the stranger in time before jumping, Mick was able to provide first aid and call an ambulance.  He was nominated for a CEO award by colleague Nakita Emmens which was presented to Mick by the Chief Executive Tracy Bullock.

Work has started on a £4 million development programme to improve facilities for cancer patients at University Hospitals of North Midlands.

The Cancer Centre at Royal Stoke is to benefit from changes to its entrance and environment  to enhance the patient journey, supporting local patients to live well with cancer.  Funded by UHNM Charity and the Denise Coates Foundation, the improvements will include a new entrance, a pharmacy, a multipurpose group room, two private rooms, an information centre, a refreshment area and a new waiting area for patients.  The clinical teams at UHNM provide cancer care to a local population of 700,000 and diagnose approximately 2,400 new cases of cancer each year.  These improvements to the Cancer Centre are expected to be completed by December this year. The main entrance to the Cancer Centre is now closed and a new entrance is available at the rear of the Lyme Valley Centre.
