The Countess of Chester Hospital NHS Foundation Trust was visited by Lord Barry Jones, vice president of Attend, the new title for The National Association of Hospital and Community Friends.
He came at the invitation of The Chester Childbirth Appeal with his wife Lady Janet to review the charity’s achievements.
They were welcomed by Sir Duncan Nichol, the trust’s chairman, Tony Chambers, chief executive, and Stephen Cross, director of corporate and legal affairs Appeal director Daniels and her trustees honorary treasurer Sandra Magilton and Audrey Houghton accompanied them around the Women and Children’s Building and they were most impressed with what they saw.
They chatted to the patients, the relatives and many of the staff.
