Jack is launched in memory at Worthing hospital

A fabulous and emotional journey happened today at Western Sussex NHS Hospitals Foundation Trust, Worthing hospital.

WE had the honour of naming our second Ortho Vision Blood grouping analyser, JACK, in memory of Jack Bray.  

It gave us the opportunity of reuniting Jack and Harvey in our Blood Transfusion laboratory.

We had the honour of being visited by Jack Mum, Andrina, Dad, Dan and Jack sister, Nicole, and Leigh our retired Senior Biomedical Scientist.

It was Leigh that gave Jack his laboratory tour prior to the start of Harvey's gang. When I launched Harvey's gang I did promise that one day I would reunite the two friends, in memory, Jack and Harvey. In my last week before retirement it did fill me with joy that I could live up to that promise to Andrina.

We had Jack' two Play Specialists, Hayley and Christie join us too. A time of reminiscing and sharing of stories

We had our haematology colleagues join us for the launch too. The Picture and plaque very kindly donated by Ortho Clinical Diagnostics, and we all had our Harvey's gang coats on, thanks to the Institute of Biomedical Sciences.
