The Trust that runs Hinchingbrooke Hospital has today welcomed 100 new staff members as the management of paediatric services on the Hinchingbrooke Hospital site transfers from Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust to North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust.

Teams working in the Children’s Unit and the Special Care Baby Unit will now become part of the Trust’s wider Children’s Services Team, which also runs services on the Peterborough City Hospital and Stamford Hospital sites.

Dr David Woolf, Clinical Director of the Family and Integrated Support Services Division of the Trust, said: “I am delighted to officially welcome our new colleagues and look forward to working more closely with them. I want to reassure our patients that they will continue to receive the same high quality service from the same highly-skilled clinicians. By bringing the management of services under the one Trust we can ensure the staff will benefit from the training and development opportunities that come with being part of a larger team.

“Thanks to an additional £1m investment from our commissioners in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, we will be able to strengthen the paediatric teams further with some additional recruitment at Hinchingbrooke over the coming months.”
