New acting chief executive of NELFT NHS Foundation Trust, Jacqui Van Rossum, is urging those who are or know someone struggling with their mental health to seek help, whether it’s Blue Monday or any other day during the year.
We have joined a growing number of organisations committing to a new way of measuring social impact.
We are delighted to announce that as of 1 January 2022, Jacqui Van Rossum is our acting Chief Executive here at NELFT.
This month, students from Graham James Primary School helped to add some much-needed greenery to the front garden of the new Corringham Integrated Medical Centre (IMC) building. With the new IMC due to open in Spring 2022, the planting ceremony offered local students the opportunity to get involved in dressing up the premises.

NELFT wins two RIDI (Recruitment Industry Disability Initiative) awards for our work on disability initiatives
We are delighted to announce that NELFT won two RIDI (Recruitment Industry Disability Initiative) awards on Friday 3 December 2021 for our work on disability initiatives at NELFT.
This Friday 3 December, is International Day for People with Disabilities.
To show our support and to mark the event, our EDI Team and our Disability Staff Network are delivering an inspiring and informative session for NELFT staff. The aim is to help create a shift in the way we think about disability and to build allyship between people who are disabled and people who are not disabled. Active allyship is at the heart of disability equality, particularly in the workplace.
I was delighted to join 150 new colleagues at our Meet and Greet as part of our NELFT Induction last week. It is always a privilege to share our NELFT vision, mission and values as well as having the opportunity to hear feedback from colleagues about their experience of joining the Trust.
Very few people seem to be aware that we have paramedics at NELFT. For this reason Ramiz thought it was really important to tell us more about the team and introduce us to the role and benefits paramedics can bring to patients in the community.
This is my first NELFT Talks blog post as acting chief executive and I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year.
Well this will be my last blog post of 2021. I can’t quite believe the end of the year is fast approaching. I obviously want to start with a massive thank you to each and every one of my colleagues for all that they have achieved this year and all they continue to do to support our patients, their loved ones and each other.
As of today, I will be writing the weekly CEO blog as I cover for Oliver who is on annual leave this month. Oliver’s last working day at NELFT was yesterday and he is now enjoying some well-earned leave throughout December.
This is my last CEO blog post before I leave our organisation. I wanted to express my personal thanks and gratitude to each and every one of my colleagues and all of our partners for all that you do. It has been such a privilege to serve alongside you, particularly during the pandemic.
Today is Nursing Support Workers Day 2021. Nursing support workers are vital members of our nursing teams in wards, clinics and community teams working with children and adults in all aspects of physical and mental health.
This week is International Fraud Awareness Week and an opportunity to remind ourselves of the importance of the work undertaken to tackle fraud against the Trust and the wider NHS.
