    Chitra Phagami | Domestic Assistant | Facilities - Domestic Services
    (Internal)

    WOW! This is the first time we have ever had our work areas cleaned to this high standard. We think Chitra was covering for a team member. He wiped down everything, swept up and cleaned areas that are usually not touched. On top of that, he was so humble when we thanked him.

    Acute Frailty Unit | Clinical Matron | Acute Frailty Unit (AFU)

    For a new unit this was an extremely professional and efficient unit, despite being seemingly a little thin on the ground for staff.
