Melanie Brindle, ward manager, said: “This is a fantastic achievement for Ward 12. Becoming the first ward in the Trust to achieve Green NAAS status for the third time is testament to their hard work and commitment to providing high quality care for our patients. I am very proud and want to thank my colleagues for their dedication."
