NHS Change Day 2015

NHS Change Day 2015 took place on March 11th and was a tremendous success. Hundreds of NHS staff, patients, carers and friends recorded the actions that they are taking to make a change for the better in health and care. Events took place across the country to encourage and celebrate these changes.

We hope that you’ve enjoyed the fantastic Changeathon: the 12 hour, online, virtual broadcast. If you missed the live event, don’t worry! You can catch up on all of the inspiring stories and see all of the footage by watching the event here

Thank you for making this incredible event possible and for lighting up the world with positive actions of change! Please continue to share your actions and the changes you are making to inspire others: DO-SHARE-INSPIRE!

Ten campaigns were launched for Change Day 2015. You can still find out more and join our campaigns via the campaigns page and continue to support them!

If you pledged last year, you can now log in with your old details (it will give you a new password if you’ve forgotten yours) and remind yourself of what you’ve promised. Why not convert this into an action for 2015, by telling us what you’ve done on the actions page?

Sharing inspiring stories

Small actions lots of people big change

The 100 Days of Change campaign has now finished. For 100 days prior to NHS Change Day 2015, we shared 100 inspiring stories of great changes in health and care. However, we still have many great stories and so we will continue to publish these on our website. You can view all of the stories at changeday.nhs.uk/latest-stories.

If you have a story that you would like to share, then please email us at changeday@nhsiq.nhs.uk.

You can also share your change actions on the Actions Page. Once you have done this, why not share your actions to inspire others: Tweet it, Facebook it, tell your friends.


All of the useful NHS Change Day resources are still available for download. On our resources page you can download the ridiculously easy guides to running an event, film and television, social media and telling a story; Change Day 2015 branding, posters and leaflets; and the Getting Started Guide.
