The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust has been using the social networking site Facebook as an additional way to engage with patients, staff, the public and partner organisations and to communicate all the latest news and information from the Trust.
After a successful year of using Twitter, reaching 1300 followers in 18 months, the Trust joined Facebook to further improve the communications reach of corporate messages.
Facebook is a useful communications tool as it allows the Trust to communicate important health messages, information, pictures and events to staff, partner organisations and the public. It also allows the Trust to engage with the local community encouraging two way communication between the Trust and its stakeholders. Facebook ‘friends’ can add comments to news stories, events and pictures posted by the Trust, as well as ‘liking’ stories, events and pictures, allowing the Trust to gauge engagement and stakeholder opinion towards certain events and initiatives.
