Staff and Volunteers at The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust have stepped up to support NHS Change Day by pledging small changes to make a big difference!
NHS Change Day is a nationwide, frontline led movement and is the largest of its kind. With a shared purpose of improving health and care, the mission is to inspire and mobilise people everywhere: staff, patients and the public, to do something better together to improve care for people.
Staff and Volunteers supported NHS Change Day on 3 March by making their pledges on dedicated pledge walls across the Trust.
Pledges included those from Dr David Hicks, Medical Director at the Trust, who pledged: “I will be ‘greener’ in my use of printers and emails”; Tracey McErlain-Burns, Chief Nurse at TRFT, pledged: “To review my email practice to ensure that it is considerate to the workload of the receiver at all times” and Anne Crompton, Deputy Chief Nurse pledged: “To put my uniform on one day a month and go out to support the wards”.
Anne said: “Thank you to all the staff and volunteers who got involved in NHS Change Day and made a pledge. The campaign has provided the Trust with the opportunity to encourage positive changes, whilst reminding ourselves of the small things we can do individually: a great way to improve patient experience and care”.
