An invitation to all healthcare organisations...

The 'Hello my name is...' campaign was created by Dr Kate Granger, a young, terminally ill, hospital consultant from Yorkshire who works in elderly care, to improve the patient experience not only here in the UK, but across the world.

The campaign is simple - reminding staff to go back to basics and introduce themselves to patients properly. Kate talks about this as "the first rung on the ladder to providing compassionate care" and sees it as the start of making a vital human connection, helping patients to relax, and building trust. Feedback from patients across the country shows how vital this is to them, saying that the smallest things make the biggest difference.
