Day 2 – First Impressions

After a night of well-deserved rest, the team arrived at the hospital bright and early to report for duty with executive director Dr Gileard Masenga.

Warmly welcoming us to his hospital, he expressed his appreciation for the past 19 years of collaboration and provided formal approval for all project work to commence.

It was at this point the team separated. Fiona, Dawn and Kirsty headed to theatres to prepare for Mr Horgan’s arrival and provide some training to the staff. Whilst Julie Hogarth and Samantha Davidson, Northumbria’s first International Leadership Fellows, went to Surgical Ward 1 and Medical Records to be introduced to the senior managers they would be working with over the week ahead.
