Gold award for King's Lynn hospital
Lynn's Queen Elizabeth Hospital has been awarded a Gold Defence Employer Recognition Scheme award for their work in helping to support the British Armed Forces.
The trust has gone one better than the silver award that it received last year.
The award is given to organisations that have shown high levels of support to the Armed Forces, and at gold level have signed the Armed Forces Covenant.
The hospital has an Armed Forces Network, involving representatives of the RAF, Army and Navy, which bosses say has been instrumental in achieving the gold award.
The trust's chairman, Professor Steve Barnett, said: “I’m absolutely delighted that the trust has been recognised for all of the hard work that they do in supporting the Armed Forces.
"We value all of our ex-serving staff members and are incredibly proud to regularly recruit ex-service personnel into the trust.”
