Urgent Community Response (UCR) service
The UCR service has been instrumental in providing immediate assistance to those in need, and they have made a significant impact on the lives of many individuals and families.

The service has come a long way in a short space of time, building a solid, knowledgeable and skilful team.

We are thrilled to celebrate this milestone with the UCR team, and we look forward to many more years of their incredible service. Congratulations on your 1st anniversary, and thank you for all you do!


We celebrated our whole Trust being SWFT Superstars for amazing performance in our Emergency Department.

It really is thanks to all teams in and out of hospital that have enabled us to achieve this!

SWFT Charity has been able to put your kind donations to excellent use at our Minor Injuries Unit and Intensive Therapy Unit. The side rooms for ICU patients and their families have been beautifully transformed thanks to the hard work of Chris Day, the Head of Governance at SWFT, who is also a talented photographer. Working with a consultant experienced in creating therapeutic spaces, a selection of stunning images taken by Chris have now been placed in the ICU side rooms by Claret Sales & Marketing.

We would like to give special thanks to Chris Day for taking these beautiful images and have chosen Chris as our Friday #SWFTSuperstar!
