Bridgewater is supporting #hellomynameis…
The ‘Hello my name is…’ campaign was spearheaded by Dr Kate Granger, a young hospital consultant from Yorkshire who works in elderly care, to improve the patient experience not only here in the UK, but across the world.
Kate became frustrated with the number of staff who failed to introduce themselves to her when she was in hospital. Her campaign on social media platform Twitter is inspiring nurses, doctors, therapists, receptionists, porters, domestics and staff in all roles.
Dr Granger, 33, has terminal cancer, and has made it her mission in whatever time she has left to get as many members of NHS staff as possible pledging to introduce themselves to their patients.
You can support Dr Granger’s campaign on Twitter by sending her a message at@GrangerKate, including your name and the phrase #hellomynameis. To find about more about the campaign, visit www.hellomynameis.org.uk/home.
