Chair Blog: Proud past, golden future
Another year is nearly over and once again we want to pass on our festive best wishes to our patients, relatives, carers, friends, as well as our fantastic staff and volunteers.
Although this Christmas message is but once a year, we know how important our services are to people across Scotland 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We aim to provide a service with the highest quality healthcare possible every time, every day.
Feedback is important to us. It allows us to improve what we do, so a huge thanks to everyone in 2017 who took the time to make suggestions, highlight concerns and thank us. The Golden Jubilee is in the fortunate position that the majority of comments we receive from the public through social media, letters and emails are positive patient stories. Stories that tell us our staff are professional, caring, efficient, approachable, and innovative.
So as we enter 2018, the Golden Jubilee Foundation will continue to work hard to ensure that we bring about further positive change in health services through our continued expansion, innovations and partnerships. Over the past 15 years we have made a valued contribution to society and we know that we can make even more of an impact on the health of our population going forward.
Helping more people than ever before; people with complex heart and lung issues, those with reduced mobility who need joint replacements, cataract sufferers, people who need a diagnosis through scanning or other procedures. That is our main purpose – providing individual care and attention to the people who come through our hospital, hotel or research institute.
This wouldn’t be possible without our staff, who treat, care and generally make people feel special every day of every year. We cannot thank them enough for the good work that they do and want to say a special thanks to those of you who are working over the Christmas public holidays.
So on behalf of the Golden Jubilee Foundation Board, Merry Christmas to all our patients, friends and colleagues. We hope you all have a healthy, happy festive season and send you our very best wishes for 2018!
