Hello my name is ...

CNWL has pledged its support to the #hello my name is campaign...

CNWL values compassion, respect, empowerment and partnership. Delivering this starts with ‘Hello my name is…’.

On Wednesday 10 August 2016 CNWL will sign up to the # hello my name campaign. This initiative has already been introduced on the Rehabilitation Ward at St Pancras Hospital and we now want all teams across the Trust to pledge to adopt the campaign.

Graeme Caul, CNWL’s Borough Director for Camden and Hillingdon Community Services and the project lead for this campaign, said: “A simple introduction is a step towards providing compassionate care. Delivering this starts with ‘Hello my name is...’ It's not just about telling someone your name, it's about establising a human connection, beginning a therapeutic relationship and building trust.”

The campaign was founded by Dr Kate Granger, a doctor and a terminally ill cancer patient, after she noticed that many staff did not introduce themselves during consultations and set about creating a worldwide movement that we are proud to be part of. You can view a short video clip (below) of Dr Granger's visit to CNWL to talk about the campaign, how it began and what it means.

We're asking staff to tweet @CNWLNHS #hellomynameis to spread the campaign far and wide.
