Please read this news item and watch the youtube video, our pharmacy teams could adopt this approach and make a huge difference to our service users, their families and carers.

#hellomynameis was set up by Dr Kate Granger, a doctor who is suffering from terminal cancer. The campaign was based on her experiences as a patient where few of the staff she encountered introduced themselves to her, while the staff were able to access a multitude of information about the patient.
Due to this #hellomynameis promotes all health and social care workers introducing themselves to their patients to improve basic quality of care. The campaign has already garnered support from a number of notable figures in the NHS including NHS chief executive Sir David Nicholson, as well as NHS England’s National Medical Director Sir Bruce Keogh and Chief Nursing Officer Jane Cummings.
