Major Peake posed for a photograph of himself holding up a sign which reads “Thank you NHS PRI for all you do!!” The staff on ward 8 were thrilled to receive the picture and plan to have it framed and hung on the ward.

Senior charge nurse Samantha Edmonds said, “It was a lovely thing for Major Peake to do and it has given all the staff on the ward a real lift.”

Associate nurse director Jim Foulis added, “The brightest stars are those who shine for others and I am very proud of the staff here in PRI that the high quality of care they provide for their patients has been recognised in the highest of places.”
