Staff away day

PCPH staff during the away dayOn 20th May, the Department held its first Away Day in nearly seven years. The afternoon proved to be a resounding success with activities around the theme "Working Better Together".

Prof Azeem Majeed warmly welcomed everyone. The afternoon began with the showcase of PCPH projects serenaded with various tunes. Small break-out groups suggested several ways of better collaboration in the future. The day was hosted by Dr Sonia Kumar, Dr Sonia Saxena and Prof Chris Millett.

The drinks reception was held on the terrace which was a lovely end to an upbeat, productive day built on the strengths of the department as it continues to strive to be its best.
