Kingsbridge Private Hospital Sligo Partners with JAM Card
We are delighted to announce that Kingsbridge Private Hospital Sligo will be introducing JAM Card to their hospital in Garden Hill. Through our JAM Card Training staff will be able to ensure that people with hidden disabilities can inclusively access and experience the same first-class service as all their patients. We applaud the team at Kingsbridge Private Hospital Sligo on becoming a JAM Card friendly hospital.
Jennifer McLaughlin, the General Manager at Kingsbridge Private Hospital in Sligo, is delighted to become the first JAM Card friendly hospital in the Group. Jennifer said:
“As a hospital it is vital, we put our patients at the centre of everything we do and ensure that people with hidden disabilities can inclusively access and experience the same first-class service as all our patients, through staff training to recognise when they need just a minute of extra time and patience.
“This was something that staff were really passionate about and when Theatre Practitioner Elizabeth Sudra, a former colleague initially brought the idea to management, it was immediately adopted by the team and our Theatre Manager and Clinical Lead, Ruth Scott was instrumental in rolling the training out across 81 staff members based in Sligo.”
Nicola Tipping, JAM Card’s Business Development Manager has added:
“Access to good healthcare is such an important part of our lives so ensuring communication between medical staff and a patient who has communication barriers is paramount so we applaud the wonderful team at Kingsbridge Private Hospital Sligo and welcome the prospect that we will be joined by their colleagues to provide the same pathway and training across the Kingsbridge Healthcare Group, in the coming year.’’
