Events happening at George's

Get involved with our Euro 2016 Football Sweepstake!

Football fever is coming to Europe this summer. To get in the spirit of it all why not hold a sweepstake and give everyone a chance of winning whilst raising money for St George’s Hospital Charity to fund new state-of-the-art equipment for patients.

This is a great way to get everyone engaged in the tournament, as even those with little or interest in football or sport can take part – they could win £15 as a prize!
We’ve got everything you need to get started – simply use our template and ask colleagues and customers for a suggested donation of £2 and then sit back and wait for the winner!
How to play:

  1. Cut out the names of the countries taking part in this year’s Euro 2016. Ask your friends, family or colleagues to pick a country out of a hat and suggest they make a donation of £2.

  2. Keep a record of everyone’s selected teams on our sweepstake poster. Pin it up somewhere where everyone can see!

  3. Wait to see who wins the tournament in the final on 10 July 2016. The person who successfully selected the winning country will win £15 from the pot (or a maximum of one third of the pot if less than £48 has been donated). Then donate the remaining money collected to St Georges Hospital Charity.

100% of any funds you donate from your sweepstake will be allocated to our ‘New Kit Appeal’ to fund life-saving new pieces of equipment for the hospital to directly benefit patients on a daily basis. Read more about the ‘New Kit Appeal’ here. Email Giving@StGeorges.nhs.uk for more info.

NHS Workforce Development: Meeting Health Needs

28th June, Manchester Conference Centre, Manchester

With just three weeks to go places for the NHS Workforce Development places are limited. With the conference examining key topical subjects such as 7 day working, staff wellbeing and the challenges of recruitment and retention the conference will assist both NHS employees and educators developing the future NHS workforce.

The NHS Workforce Development: Meeting Health Needs conference is a timely event to examine how the current workforce is dealing with ever increasing patient demand and how some of the “critical pressures” can be alleviated and individual staff can be supported. The conference agenda will discuss how to develop strategies to overcome some of the challenges such as staff shortages, morale and engagement, recruitment and retention, financial implications, health and wellbeing.

Join us at the NHS Workforce Development: Meeting Health Needs conference where all the current issues and future concerns surrounding workforce development within the NHS will be discussed, dissected and debated.
