  • In May the trust was named in the CHKS list of top-performing hospital operators for the fifth year in a row.
  • In August the trust was awarded an £11.3 million contract to deliver sexual health services across the Cheshire East Council footprint for the next five years.

  • In October the catering service at Macclesfield Hospital became only the second hospital in England to be awarded the Soil Association Food for Life Bronze Catering Mark for both its restaurant food and its patient food, recognising its drive for fresh meals and good food for all.
  • In December 2015 trust ED nurse and bed manager Rachel Falconer (pictured above) was presented with the Ebola Military Medal by Prince William for her role helping Ebola patients in Sierra Leone. Like a number of trust colleagues, Rachel serves with 207 Field Hospital of the Army Reserves.
