Welcome<br />

Firstly, we want to say thank you to everyone who supported us in<br />

2022. Your donations helped us to do so much.<br />

From the purchase of a new Echo Navigator to speed up and improve<br />

the success rate of catheterisation procedures, to refurbishing the staff<br />

room for theatre staff. To the purchase of a new surgical saw which<br />

improves outcomes for lung patients. As if that wasn't enough, we were<br />

also able to expand the use of Sky Tiles in our Intensive Care Unit. (See<br />

more on Page 20).<br />

We couldn’t have done any of this without you and we are especially<br />

grateful as we know how tough times are at the moment!<br />

We hope you enjoy your issue and if you have any comments please do<br />

let us know.<br />

See you in the Autumn<br />

Shaken and Stirred<br />

by the new LHCH Charity Ambassador<br />

Star of stage and screen Daniel Craig has<br />

agreed to become an Ambassador for LHCH Charity.<br />

With his own strong connections to Merseyside and Cheshire,<br />

Daniel understood the outstanding work of LHCH and<br />

its ambitious future plans which led to him<br />

accepting the role of LHCH Charity<br />

Ambassador.<br />

On his acceptance Daniel said:<br />

“LHCH is an internationally<br />

recognised centre of excellence<br />

for the care and treatment of<br />

patients with heart and lung disease.<br />

LHCH Charity supports this work by<br />

providing additional funds, so it is a<br />

privilege for me to support their<br />

incredible work.”<br />

We are so excited to be welcoming<br />

Daniel as an Ambassador. As one of<br />

the most recognised and celebrated<br />

actors of our generation, his support<br />

will do so much to raise our profile<br />

and we can’t thank him enough for<br />

being part of Team LHCH Charity.<br />

<strong>Spotlight</strong> on...<br />

Membership<br />

How many of you are aware that Liverpool Heart and Chest<br />

Hospital (LHCH) is an NHS Foundation Trust and how that differs<br />

from other NHS Trusts?<br />

As a Foundation Trust, LHCH is still part of the NHS and adheres to<br />

all of its standards. However, we do have the ability to act<br />

independently of central Government giving us the opportunity to<br />

respond directly to local needs to meet their requirements.<br />

This makes us accountable to our patients and community and we<br />

do this through encouraging people to become Members of the<br />

hospital.<br />

LHCH has over 8,800 members who each help us make a difference<br />

and shape the future of our hospital.<br />

What does membership involve?<br />

Members must be over 16 years of age. You can choose your own<br />

level of involvement and, of course, you can cease to be a member<br />

at any time.<br />

As a member you can take advantage of the following benefits:<br />

You are kept informed about the latest LHCH news through our<br />

newsletter (LHCH Matters) four times a year.<br />

You can attend our community events which raise awareness of<br />

important health topics and the Annual Members’ Meeting<br />

You could vote in Governor elections or even stand to become a<br />

Governor yourself!<br />

Get involved in shaping the future of LHCH by becoming<br />

involved in surveys or focus groups.<br />

How are members represented?<br />

There are two types of membership -<br />

Public and Staff. Public membership is<br />

divided geographically into four different<br />

areas which are Merseyside, Cheshire,<br />

North Wales and the Rest of England<br />

and Wales.<br />

Members from each of these regions<br />

are eligible to stand for election to<br />

the LHCH Council of Governors.<br />

The Council of Governors comprises<br />

25 members from both the public<br />

and staff membership as well as<br />

representatives from other organisations<br />

such as Liverpool City Council,<br />

University of Liverpool, John Moores University<br />

and Friends of Robert Owen House.<br />

The Council of Governors are there to<br />

represent the views of members and the public<br />

as well as hold the Non-Executive Directors of<br />

the Board to account.<br />

Meetings are held in public every quarter and<br />

members are welcome to attend and observe<br />

these meetings.<br />

You can find papers<br />

from meetings of the<br />

Council of Governors<br />

by visiting the hospital<br />

website and clicking on<br />

the Council of<br />

Governors link.<br />

A Governor's Story<br />

Trevor Wooding is a Public Governor<br />

for Merseyside and Senior Governor<br />

at LHCH. Trevor has been involved<br />

since 2014 and brings a wealth of<br />

experience to the Council of Governors.<br />

What appealed about the Governor role at LHCH?<br />

I’ve been a patient at LHCH since 2002 and have always received<br />

exceptional care. Taking on this voluntary role was my idea of<br />

giving something back to the hospital that had made such a<br />

difference to me personally.<br />

Tell us about some of your LHCH Governor ‘best bits’?<br />

Over the years I’ve seen LHCH rated ‘Outstanding’ in 2016 and<br />

2019. I’ve seen the hospital receive high rating results in the NHS<br />

In-patient and Staff surveys so there has been lots to be proud of.<br />

I’ve found the interaction with the former and current Chair, fellow<br />

Governors, Board Directors and LHCH staff to be very positive.<br />

I’ve supported numerous community events and enjoyed recruiting<br />

new members, as well as representing the views of members and<br />

the public. The opportunities made available to me and other<br />

Governors for training and developing knowledge have been great<br />

too.<br />

What would you say to someone considering taking on the role?<br />

Go for it! If you have spare time and can commit, then it is very<br />

rewarding. We have both retired and employed Governors who are<br />

very active. So, as long as you can offer the time commitment and<br />

want to get involved, this could be for you!<br />

Interested in becoming a Governor?<br />

This <strong>Spring</strong>, elections will be taking place for a number of LHCH<br />

Governor seats. We will be looking for enthusiastic and committed<br />

individuals to join our Council of Governors and make a real<br />

difference.<br />

If you are interested in finding out more about this voluntary role<br />

please get in touch with the Membership Office:<br />

by calling 0151 600 1410<br />

or emailing membership.office@lhch.nhs.uk.<br />

Full details, including Notice of Election, will be published on the<br />

news pages of the hospital website nearer the time.<br />

Lemon Butter Biscuits<br />

Prep Time: 15 mins<br />

Cook Time: 10 mins<br />

Resting time: 30 mins<br />

Makes 20 biscuits<br />

1. Place the sugar, butter, lemon zest and salt in a mixing bowl and<br />

cream together until light and fluffy. Add in a beaten egg and stir<br />

well to combine, before adding the flour and mixing to a stiff dough.<br />

2. Place the dough on a sheet of baking paper. Roll into a biscuit<br />

sized log shape, approximately 5cm in diameter and wrap up in the<br />

baking paper.<br />

3. Place the dough in the fridge for 1-2 hours, until it has formed a<br />

solid block that you can slice - or store in fridge overnight if<br />

preparing in advance. When ready to bake, remove the dough from<br />

the fridge, remove the paper and cut into 1cm slices.<br />

4. Place the biscuits onto a lined baking tray in the oven (preheated<br />

to 180c or Gas Mark 4) and bake for 10 minutes until lightly golden.<br />

Happy 75th Birthday to the NHS!<br />

Happy 75th<br />

Birthday NHS!<br />

In England, over 1.3 million people, each and every day depend on the<br />

NHS for treatment. It would be hard to imagine life without it!<br />

This year sees a very special birthday for the NHS as it turns 75 on<br />

5th July and what a great time to celebrate the dedicated staff who<br />

are there for us whenever illness hits.<br />

The last 75 years have seen the NHS innovate and adapt to meet the<br />

needs of each successive generation, always putting patients at the<br />

heart of everything it does. Most recently of course during the<br />

Covid-19 pandemic when the NHS rolled out the vaccine programme<br />

with a combination of speed and precision unseen elsewhere in the<br />

World.<br />

None of this would be possible without the skill,<br />

dedication and compassion of NHS staff and volunteers.<br />

From the midwives who help bring us into the world, the<br />

GPs and pharmacists who are our first port of call when<br />

we are sick, the nurses, doctors and other clinicians who<br />

care for us in our time of need and the unsung heroes the<br />

porters, cleaners and backroom staff who keep our<br />

hospitals moving.<br />

Following in<br />

Lauren’s footsteps!<br />

25 year old, Caius Jefferies was under no<br />

illusions when he decided to take on the<br />

Manchester Marathon in April this year.<br />

He only had to ask his partner Lauren about<br />

the sheer dedication and training that goes<br />

into a challenge event like this.<br />

Caius from Cheadle says:<br />

“Lauren did an amazing job with<br />

her own fundraising for LHCH<br />

Charity back in 2020 when she<br />

walked 500 miles in a month,<br />

raising a fantastic £800 for the<br />

charity in the process."<br />

"She did it to say thank you to<br />

LHCH for the care they showed<br />

her mum, June before she passed<br />

away in 2019 after a long battle<br />

with Cystic Fibrosis. It seemed<br />

only right that I should add my<br />

thanks to hers by taking on my<br />

own challenge.”<br />

Caius who has never run a<br />

marathon before says it’s<br />

going well and he is on course<br />

with his training programme.<br />

He has already got a couple<br />

of shorter runs under his belt<br />

but the big one, of course, is<br />

in April when he will be doing<br />

a whole 26.2 miles!<br />

He says: “I have only ever run a<br />

10K until now so I have never<br />

challenged myself like this before but<br />

I have no doubt that I will complete the<br />

course, especially with Lauren and<br />

LHCH Charity behind me.”<br />

We’re sure that he will absolutely smash it on the day and can’t<br />

wait to see the photographs of Caius and Lauren celebrating!<br />

A room with a view<br />

Back in 2019 we asked you to support our appeal<br />

to provide updated facilities designed to assist<br />

some of our most poorly patients in Critical Care.<br />

As we explained at the time our aim was to reduce the incidence of<br />

delirium for patients who have to spend an extended period in<br />

Critical Care and, of course, you responded in your usual incredibly<br />

generous way which allowed us to:<br />

Extend the use of the Critical Care Garden with the<br />

provision of a garden roof and heaters. This wonderful<br />

space can now be used all year round despite what the<br />

British weather throws at us.<br />

Jacqui Stratton, Critical Care Matron says:<br />

“Delirium can affect all patients at<br />

any age, but research suggests it affects<br />

patients staying in Critical Care at a<br />

disproportionate rate. Delirium can<br />

lead to increased length of stay, poor<br />

prognosis and poor patient outcomes.<br />

This is why we are so grateful to LHCH<br />

Charity for supporting the extension of<br />

the use of the picture ceilings so all our<br />

patients can benefit.”<br />

“It has been estimated that up to 90%<br />

of patients being treated in Critical<br />

Care Units in the UK experience some<br />

form of delirium during their stay.”<br />

Refit the family rooms to make them a more welcoming<br />

and comfortable space<br />

Install picture ceilings in six of the rooms which have no<br />

access to natural daylight helping patients retain their<br />

sleep rhythms as changes can be a major precursor to<br />

the development of delirium.<br />

Such has been the success of this<br />

project that LHCH Charity has<br />

now supported the extension of<br />

the picture ceilings to all the<br />

rooms in Critical Care, ensuring<br />

that all patients can benefit from<br />

the difference that the picture<br />

ceilings make.<br />
