As the Trust 'Champion' for age, I am keen to hear from any member of staff or any service user - patient, relative or visitor to the Trust, who has a point of view they would like to express about their experiences.

It is important for us to know what we do well, but it is also essential that we have the chance to look at areas which may have room for improvement.

The title is 'Age Champion' and I imagine that a large part of the role will encompass issues raised by people in the older age bracket. However, there may also be a number of issues for younger people which, historically, have been overlooked.

Please contact me with any comments you would like to make about age related issues at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Key findings:

  • Overall the Trust employs relatively few staff at the early stages of typical working age (e.g. from 16 – 20) and 14.7% of the workforce is aged 60 or over.
  • ‘Administrative and Clerical’ has an older workforce with a low percentage of staff falling into the 16 – 25 age groups. Medical, Nursing & Midwifery and Estates and Facilities are moving towards an older workforce.
  • Clinical staff (medical and non-medical groups) tend to employ a proportionate number of younger staff, but have relatively fewer staff in the 55+ age groups.
