Hospital staff joined local health chiefs to plant the 100th tree at Rampton Hospital last week to mark its centenary.

Ninety-nine trees had already been planted in the grounds of the Hospital, which is part of Notts Healthcare, one for each year it has been open.

The Trust’s chief executive Professor Mike Cooke CBE, chairman Professor Dean Fathers and executive director of forensic services Dr Mike Harris, joined hospital staff to carry out the planting outside the Mike Harris Learning and Development Centre.

A commemorative plaque was also unveiled to mark the end of the project.

Dr Mike Harris said: “This year is an important milestone for the Trust and the Hospital and it is an achievement that we are proud of and keen to celebrate.”

“The planting of 100 trees will leave a lasting symbol which people in the years to come will be able to enjoy. Over the coming months we look forward to sharing more exciting events with patients, staff, carers and the local community to commemorate the centenary year.”
