NHS Change Day: do something better together

15 February 2013

NHS Change Day will take place on 13.03.13.  It will be one day during which the collective energy, creativity and ideas of thousands of NHS staff, and those who support the NHS, in all areas of work and right across the country, will demonstrate how one simple action or new idea can make a difference and improve care for patients, their families and their carers. The team behind NHS Change Day are asking people to make pledges of an action or idea. You can see our pledge on the NHS Change Day pledge wall.

It will be the single largest improvement event in the NHS to date and UCL Medical School will be supporting our students in making a diference.

All staff and students are being asked to focus on quality improvement and patient-centred care. Activities and events will be different across different years and sites. Many activities will be student-led. We are hoping that students, module leads, site leads, tutors, clinicians, academics, teaching fellows, clinical skills staff, and anyone else at UCLMS will contribute to the ideas and activities. We need “change-makers:” volunteers who will lead activities and events in their own context.

A Moodle site is now live and contains resources and our own local pledge wall. Please contact Deborah Gill or Laura-Jane Smith to put yourself forward as a “change-maker”.

Please join our pledge on the main NHS Change Day site to show your support.
