Remembrance: Staff at Princess Alexandra Hospital in Harlow mark Armistice Day




Staff at Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust (PAHT) are marking the service and sacrifice of the Armed Forces community from Britain and the Commonwealth on Wednesday (November 11).

Workers are attending a virtual Armistice Day service, led by the chaplaincy team, at 11am and observing a two-minute silence.

Visitors can see poignant Remembrance displays around the site, featuring poppies and poppy hanging baskets, donated to the Hamstel Road hospital by Harlow Council.

The Patient Panel has positioned a Forgotten Tommy statue outside the hospital and a display table in the main foyer.

Sharon McNally, the trust's director of nursing, midwifery and allied health professionals, said: "Remembrance Day honours those who serve to defend our democratic freedoms and way of life.

"It means a great deal to us to take this opportunity to unite in pausing together and paying tribute to those who have served and sacrificed to defend our nation."
