Farewell Dame Mary Archer
1 November 2012
Dame Mary Archer gave a fond thanks and farewell to staff at Addenbrooke’s and the Rosie yesterday as part of a tour around the Trust. She steps down after 20 years of service – 10 as chairman.
Mary visited almost every area of the hospital speaking to staff about their work and their plans for the future.
In her farewell message to staff, she commended their huge range of skills:
“It’s been a pleasure and a privilege to chair the Trust for the past 10 years. After visiting almost every area of Addenbrooke's and the Rosie in recent days, I have realised afresh what a fantastic range of skills are needed in order to keep our hospitals running at such a high standard.
The dedication to the care of patients I have seen in our staff is truly inspiring. I offer my thanks to all of you and I wish the Trust every continued success”.
