Do something better together

rsz_kamsy_ugenyi_patienttency_george_practice_nurse_beckton_-_37The countdown to NHS Change Day has begun with #100daysofchange, where we’ll be sharing daily stories of action on the website. We have also launched the refreshed NHS Change Day website. Look out for exciting developments on this site over the next month. 

Every day between 1 December and Wednesday 11 March we will publish a story about individuals and organisations, who have made changes or who are making the change right now and the effects their changes have had.

On the 1 January you’ll be able to tell us about the actions you are working on and log this on our website to share with and inspire others. If you have feedback on the site or have a story about a change email us on changeday@nhsiq.nhs.uk.

In the lead up to and on Wednesday 11 March local activities will be taking place to recognise the positive changes that have resulted due to the actions people have taken.

Our time has come.

What we do and how we do it, is up to us.
