WHAT IS THE #hellomynameis…CAMPAIGN?
#hello my name is… is a campaign that was started by Kate Granger with the sole aim to help improve a patient experience not only in the United Kingdom but all over the world.
Kate Granger was a Doctor and a terminally ill cancer patient who noticed that while she received care in 2014, a large number of staff who looked after her failed to introduce themselves beforehand. Dr Kate watched the campaign go from strength to strength via social media before it was covered widely by the national press. The campaign is so successful that it’s backed by some leading names all over the UK.
The #hellomynameis… campaign is such a simple idea but so very effective, simply asking that all NHS staff no matter what rank or position will pledge to introduce themselves in a friendly and professional manner to all their patients and visitors. A simple smile and friendly introduction is the first step with any greeting, and goes a long way to help a nervous patient become relaxed and feel at ease.
Over 500,000 healthcare professionals have pledged support across 90 different organisations including NHS Trusts in England, NHS Wales and NHS Scotland.
