Poole Hospital’s matrons recognised by Mayor
POOLE Hospital’s matrons have received the Mayor of Poole’s first ever recognition award for their role in improving local health services.
The group of matrons, including representatives from oncology, emergency services and surgery, were presented with recognition award certificates, in a ceremonial lunch in the Mayor’s Parlour.
The award recognised the matrons’ hard work in changing the way the hospital cares for patients. This includes supporting nurses to make decisions about clinical care, creating treatment plans and working to reduce unnecessary overnight stays and hospital admissions.
Martin Smits, director of nursing and patient services, said: “This group of matrons represent the wider ethos of the matron model at Poole – putting the patient and their wellbeing at the heart of all we do.

“I wished, on behalf of local residents, to thank them for their work and to fully recognise the esteem in which they are held locally.”
