LEMeR Giving Back
The LEMeR team understand that all members of staff contribute to research in some way and we like to say thank you.
100 Day Review - Water bottles
We decided to run the 100 day review, this involved inviting all staff in A&E to make a suggestion on how we could improve A&E not just for patients but for staff too.
One of the ideas which was suggested many times over was the introduction of water bottles for our staff.
LEMeR designed and funded the water bottles. These went down very well with our staff and we intend to order more in the future. These are our I AM TEAM ED water bottles.
LEMeR again funded promotional items for our safeguarding teams, for all staff regarding the emergency care standard and to raise awareness for research.
We also provided pens for the clinical Educators, these were along the same lines as the I AM TEAM ED water bottles
A&E Celebrating Success Awards
LEMeR put on an awards night for the Emergency Department. This gala was to let members of the ED team know that they were valued. This event was entirely funded by LEMeR. The categories are listed on our events page.
Through a saddening event last year it was brought to light that support was needed for our staff. A scheme was developed in order to provide support for each other through stressful and emotional times, this is 'Listening Ears'. Staff are volunteering to be a 'Listening Ear'. These members of staff will be identified through a lapel badge in the shape of an ear. LEMeR offered to fund the purchase of these badges to be used across both of our A&E sites.
