Muna Chauhan

Our Fundraising Manager and this week's SWFT Superstar, Muna Chauhan, was invited to Buckingham Palace this weekend for an event hosted by His Majesty King Charles III, commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the expulsion of Ugandan Asians from Uganda and their resettlement to Britain in 1972.

Maria Tomassini
Physiotherapist, Maria Tomassini, works on Chadwick Ward at Central England Rehabilitation Unit (CERU).

Maria recently got in touch with the Communications team at SWFT to tell the inspiring story of one of her patients, Shaun Butler, who was admitted to CERU after undergoing neurosurgery and being diagnosed with locked-in syndrome.

It has been eight months since Shaun’s surgery and he has recently been discharged. Shaun wanted to thank the staff at CERU, especially Maria who helped save his life.

We are so proud of Maria who goes above and beyond for patients daily. Maria’s compassion, optimism and kindness do not go unnoticed.

Rebecca Badhams
Head of Nursing for Elective Care and Support Services, Rebecca Badhams, attended Warwick’s Remembrance Day celebrations on Sunday 13 November and laid a Wreath on behalf of our Trust.

This is the first time the Trust has been represented at this celebration. We are incredibly proud of Rebecca for representing South Warwickshire University NHS Foundation Trust at such a memorable celebration to remember the service and sacrifices made by the armed forces and emergency services.
