Blackburn private hospital wins top honour

A HOSPITAL in Blackburn has received a top honour at a national awards ceremony.

BMI Beardwood Hospital received the Pride Award at BMI Healthcare’s annual Night of the Stars Awards, aimed at recognising the hospital which has the most passionate staff.

It was chosen because the hosp-ital team have spent the past two years improving the look, and atmosphere, to help patients feel at ease during their stay.

The rooms and corridors have been redecorated, and hospital staff converted their under-used gym into a walk-in walk-out unit for patients who only required a short stay.

Samantha Sheehan, executive director for the hospital, said: “We are so proud that BMI Beardwood has won the Night of the Stars Pride Award.

“The dedication of staff was key to achieving this goal.”

The awards celebrate the best of BMI Healthcare, awarding staff, hospitals, and initiatives, from 69 hospitals, and almost 8,000 staff in the group.

The NHS used to be like that, I wonder were all the staff trained by the private hospital or the NHS? But congratulations to the Beardwood for setting standards.

Bang on Mavrick..Sit back while the taxman trains them up in the NHS then pick the cream of the crop for the private sector. Gone on for years and it will never change while we have the devides in society we have.

And for myself looking at the society we have all created in the present times we survive in, its akin watching vultures fighting over the last scraps of a festering carcass. With 90% of us looking on wondering when we will become the festering carcass...

My little brother was born there in the mid-sixties and as a four year old visitor I remember being scared witless by the sight of the nuns!
