Nominee's story :
CTASU, a team of 15 whos usual daily work load is made up of compounding clinical trial IV medications for a broad range of conditions and diseases. Throughout the pandemic we were also tasked with compounding supporting medications for patients with Covid on ITU. This increased our workload from around 20/30 infusions per day up to 500 per day. New shift patterns were formed to accommodate this, extra hours worked and weekends became non existent. Everyone at CTASU has been amazing and helped each other throughout this busy time, both work and personal life.
Alongside this members of CTASU were also involved in the pharmacy PIPA service which also prepared medications for the ward to ease the pressure on the nurses.
After hours staff would attend to help out at the Covid vaccination center set up at the Churchill hospital oxford, often staying very late to help vaccinate the huge volumes of people within the trust.
I would love a bit of recognition for the CTASU team for all the hard work and long hours put in this year and the speed in which these extra services provided were set up.
