The Countess of Chester is the main hospital for Chester. It services include Accident and Emergency, General Medicine and Paediatric Medicine. The hospital joined the NHS Forest in 2013.
The hospital has embraced NHS Sustainability day by organising events to raise awareness and mark the day in the trust’s diary. It now has two new additions to its ground in the shape of two silver birch trees which were planted at 2pm as part of the Two Trees at 2pm NHS Forest event. The event was organised by Libby Critchley, the hospital’s Green Nephrology Lead. The trees were kindly donated by a local, family-run garden centre, Roots ‘n’ Shoots.
NHS Sustainability Day was also marked, as part of the trust’s ongoing commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility, by holding a ‘Dr Bike’ session, organised by Alexander Ford, co-ordinator for Chester Health Park Cycling user group. ‘Bill Bikes’ of Ellesmere Port kindly offered a Free Dr Bike session, during which he checked the cycles and offered cycle maintenance advice.
