Joseph Casey and Jon Findlay named one of the UK’s 50 kind leaders
The Financial Times featured an advertorial page listing the senior leaders in the UK who are making a positive impact with kindness, including our Director of Partnerships and Programmes at King's Health Partners and the Chief Operating Officer at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, Jon Findlay. He was included in a list compiled by the organisation Kindness Rules to coincide with World Kindness Day.
A new digital partnership to improve patient care
Digital Health and Health Tech Newspaper ran a story about Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust choosing Epic to implement a new electronic health record system, following our press release about the new partnership.
First plasma recipient meets her donor
Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust's patient Ann Kitchen was the first person in the country to receive a blood plasma treatment for COVID-19 as part of a nationwide clinical trial. She was filmed meeting the man whose donation helped her to recover, Kugan, an A&E charge nurse.
The result was a very moving film, designed to attract more donors to sign up to the study. The story ran on BBC Breakfast, BBC News at One, BBC News Channel and BBC World News, with mentions of St Thomas’ Hospital. On the day it aired, 2,500 online registrations to donate plasma were submitted, an increase of at least 25% compared with days during the previous two weeks.
