Celebrate 75 years of the NHS with our podcast – Great to Talk

As we celebrate 75 years of the NHS this summer, the Great Western Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is celebrating the work of teams right across the organisation with the return of our podcast, Great to Talk.

In the build up to celebrations taking place on Wednesday 5 July, one short episode of Great to Talk will be released every week for the next nine weeks. 

Each of the podcasts will be led by different members of staff, sharing their own stories of the journey to working at Great Western Hospital and our community teams. The stories will highlight the difference that all our teams make to the care that we provide. 

The first episode highlights two of our internationally educated nurses, Helena and Oluwatobi.

You can listen to it here, on your smartphone, or by visiting the Great to Talk webpage which will include all the latest episodes.

Each of the podcasts will be led by members of staff, patients and their families as we explore the impact of the care that we provide.

Future episodes will include:  

  • How our Research and Innovation team help develop the care we provide for our patients
  • The impact Huntingdon’s Disease has had on the family of one of our rehabilitation specialists
  • The journey of one anaesthetist from Swindon to Afghanistan, through a career in the Armed Forces
  • How our Admiral Nurses help us care for patients with dementia
  • Why people choose to fundraise for our charity, Brighter Futures

You can find out when the episodes are released by subscribing to the podcast, so you do not miss out on tuning into future episodes. Alternatively, you will find links to future episodes on our social media channels.
