The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust was selected as just one of a handful of healthcare organisations nationally to receive a prestigious visit from Kate Granger.

Kate, creator and champion of the ‘hello my name is’ campaign, has worked in elderly medicine in Yorkshire as a consultant and registrar and has terminal cancer.

Kate began and spearheaded the ‘hello my name is’ campaign after she noticed that some doctors, nurses and support staff delivering her care failed to introduce themselves – a simple action that makes a massive difference to the experience patients have.

The campaign has received nationwide success with NHS organisations and online communities up and down the country pledging to say ‘hello my name is’ when caring for patients.

Louise Barnett, Chief Executive at The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust, commented: “We are delighted that Kate herself has supported our commitment to the campaign by selecting our Trust to visit. I have personally committed to ‘hello my name is’ and encourage others to do the same so that together we can make a positive difference to how patients feel.

“Here at our Trust more than 500 colleagues have pledged to ‘hello my name is’ and we are encouraging all colleagues to make this commitment.

Kate’s visit to Rotherham was stop 14 of 15 of the tour which has spanned England, Scotland and Wales.

Staff described Kate’s talk at the Trust as ‘inspirational’ and ‘humbling’ and those who attended went away eager to continue Kate’s legacy by carrying the hello my name is campaign forward.

As part of her visit to Rotherham, Kate signed a pledge which will be displayed around the Trust as a lasting token of the commitment made on the campaign’s behalf.
