Norman Lamb MP made a whistle-stop visit to the James Paget University Hospital on Friday 25 January 2013.
The Minister of State for Care and Support met with Chairman David Wright, Vice-Chairman, Peter Franzen and Chief Executive David Hill, to hear how the hospital is continuing to improve performance, delivering good patient care and also planning for the future.
Following the concerns raised in the media regarding horsemeat in food products, the James Paget University Hospitals is reassuring patients and visitors about the meat supplied to the Trust.
All of our meat is sourced from a local East Anglian supplier and no processed foods are given to our patients.
Public governors at the James Paget University Hospital have helped make the case for investment in new wheelchairs for patients and visitors.
Governors raised concerns about a lack of wheelchairs and that led to a review of provision at the Gorleston hospital. The review highlighted that 10 additional wheelchairs bought in Autumn 2012 had all disappeared by the end of November.
A unique new service at the James Paget University Hospital designed to help women deliver breech babies naturally has been shortlisted by the Royal College of Midwives for an Excellence in Maternity award.
The Heads Up! Clinic at the James Paget is the only service of its kind in the East of England and has been developed by breech specialist midwife Shawn Walker, and clinical midwifery manager Ann Walker.
The Governors Council that represents the views of patients, public and staff will meet on Friday 14 December and not Friday 7 December as originally scheduled.
The public section of the meeting will also be shorter than normal. This will enable the Governors to have a longer meeting in private to discuss the five year strategy for the Trust.
