Meet the backroom boys...
Strathcarron is so much more than just a building or a collection of services – it is special because of the people who work together to care for our patients and their families, both within the Hospice itself and out in the community.
This week we would like to shine the spotlight on some gentlemen without whom everything would quite literally ground to a halt! Maintenance Supervisor Brian Smith, supported by his ‘men in black’ Gino and Andy plus a team of twelve skilled volunteers, is responsible for a huge variety of tasks, seven days a week. The team take care of all the general maintenance of the building and grounds, supported by external contractors where required, though they do themselves cover a range of trades from engineering to electricians, plumbers and joiners! Health and safety responsibilities are high on Brian’s list of priorities – practical duties are balanced expertly with ensuring policies and guidelines are observed and adhered to.
