Annual Report and Accounts 2019/20
Welcome to our Annual Report which covers the financial period from 1 April 2019 to 31 March 2020.
I remain extremely proud to be part of this caring, committed and hard-working organisation. The last year was another incredibly busy year during which we worked innovatively and collaboratively to find new ways to provide outstanding care, also to meet the ever increasing demand upon our services.
During the year, we have continued to work with system partners in the Surrey Heartlands Health and Care Partnership and we have also started to forge important new relationships with local businesses and communities in our journey to become an anchor institution.
Towards the end of this year we, alongside the entire NHS, have been required to respond to the most extraordinary challenges brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. I feel immensely proud of the way in which team ASPH has risen to meet this challenge, from rapidly and completely changing the ways we work and deliver care, to creating vital additional capacity, and to displaying outstanding team work, through care and compassion for one another as well as for our patients. I feel proud to stand with all my colleagues, and wish to extend my deepest and heartfelt thanks to the whole team.
Andy Field, Chairman
