Connect magazine is back!

We are pleased to announce the return of the Connect magazine which has been out of publication since 2014.

CONNECT Cover 1The first edition, which is available online and in print copy around the trust, features the amazing survival of Oscar Clayton, who was diagnosed with a rare cancer at 18 months which saw a tumour wrapped around his aorta and major organs, and 13-year-old Jake Malcolm, who underwent a major scalp reconstruction using an innovative balloon technique after a dog attack left him severely injured.

There is also a look back at some of the major stories of 2019 which made national headlines, including the story of Alison Cameron, who became pain-free after 40 years following a world-first nerve stimulation implant, and a new corneal laser which pulses at one quadrillionth of a second.

Chairman Peter Hollins provides a welcome and information on how to have a say on the future of the trust by signing up as a member, while emergency department consultant Dr Iain Beardsell gives us an insight into his work behind-the-scenes on Sky One thriller Temple.

Patients, staff and visitors also have the opportunity to win a £50 Love2shop voucher in our Sudoku competition which is sponsored by Serco.

Matt Watts, head of news at UHS, said: “I am really pleased we’ve been able to bring Connect magazine back into production as it provides another great way for us to share fantastic stories from across the organisation, highlight the work of staff and departments in a variety of areas and keep in touch with patients and visitors about the latest developments.”
