Thank you to Black Country Partnership NHS Foundation Trust who signed the charter on 19th February 2019 providing protection for their 2,019 employees.
Chief Executive of the Trust, Lesley Writtle, said:
“We had no hesitation in signing up to this Charter. When people are terminally ill and at their most vulnerable, we believe it is extremely important that as an organisation we do the right thing, and that our staff members should not lose their dignity or financial security at the final stage of their life. "We want to send a message to staff that we are signed up to the Charter as another way of saying to that we will do everything possible to ensure we support individuals and their family at their greatest time of need. One member of staff, on hearing that the Trust was signing-up emailed me to say how proud she was to work in an organisation that has signed the charter.”
