Hello My Name Is...Campaign for More Compassionate and Personal Care Starting with an Introduction

"I'm a doctor, but also a terminally ill cancer patient. During a hospital stay last summer I made the stark observation that many staff looking after me did not introduce themselves before delivering care.
This felt very wrong so encouraged and supported by my husband we decided to start a campaign to encourage and remind healthcare staff about the importance of introductions in the delivery of care. I firmly believe it is not just about knowing someone's name, but it runs much deeper. It is about making a human connection, beginning a therapeutic relationship and building trust. In my mind it is the first rung on the ladder to providing compassionate care."
