NHS Professionals are proud to be associated with the hello my name is…campaign

The “hello my name is” campaign was started by Dr Kate Granger after she became frustrated with the number of staff who failed to introduce themselves to her when she was an inpatient with post-operative sepsis. Dr Granger, has terminal cancer but continues to work as an elderly medicine registrar.

Since leaving hospital, she has started a campaign on Twitter asking NHS staff to make a pledge to introduce themselves in future to their patients.

Nurses and other frontline NHS staff are being asked to tell their patients their name, as part of a campaign launched by a terminally ill doctor on the popular social media website Twitter.

We support this and you will be sent a new ID badge as it is important that if you work flexible hour’s patients are able to identify you. Please ensure that you wear it at every shift that you have booked through us.
