We have now unveiled all ten #NHSChangeDay campaigns. You can find them below in order of most recent first, or from the main menu under Campaigns, in alphabetical order.
These are all from the grassroots, created by staff, patients, carers, care workers, members of the public. Many started as pledges in previous years. Want to start a campaign that isn’t here? Begin by going to the actions page. Start it as an action, recruit other people, and let it grow.

Making care and health better for women affected by menopause: change is badly needed to challenge existing attitudes, raise awareness of menopause-related health issues and connect both clinicians and patients with reliable, evidence-based information. Our ultimate aim is to inform the public, educate the professionals and empower women.
For patients and their carers to achieve the things that matter to them by working in partnership with those in the NHS. HelloOURaimis asks you what is the single most important aim you want to achieve and how the people involved in your care (you, family, friends, carers, doctors, nurses etc) can work with you to achieve this aim.
#MyMeds is a simple action to remind all healthcare professionals who see patients in urgent or emergency care settings, to check what regular medications the patient has, and to make sure, if appropriate, they are delivered.
#Studentledchange, is a campaign to unleash the potential of the thousands of health student-led learning and research projects conducted annually, but seldom published or documented. It features QuID.org.uk, an open access database for students to submit their projects and learn from others.
Avoidable pressure ulcers are a key indicator of the quality of nursing care. Preventing them happening will improve all care for vulnerable patients. The ‘Stop the Pressure’ campaign was launched by NHS Midlands and East as part of their ambition to make life better for patients. The campaign is now being rolled out nationally, with NHS England, NHS Improving Quality and Haelo joining forces with other partners.
Sepsis is frighteningly common. We see 102,000 cases every year. 37,000 people a year die from sepsis every year in the United Kingdom. This is not about complex, expensive therapies, but about recognition and doing the basics. That’s what the Sepsis toolkits are all about. If we do the basics, if we get this right, we can save at least 12,500 people’s lives every year.
There are lots of barriers, misconceptions and preconceived ideas when it comes to relationships between doctors in training and managers, and these stereotypes can become embedded at senior levels. Paired learning puts clinicians and managers together in mutual learning relationships.
#MatExp is a powerful grassroots campaign using the Whose Shoes?® approach to identify and share best practice across the nation’s maternity services. It has already been triggering discussions about what needs to improve; we are so grateful to all the people from across the country who have shared their thoughts and experiences. You are all helping us build a powerful social movement for change! We then need to work together to make it happen!
Over 840 000 people are living with dementia, affecting over 22 million people in the UK, either as a family member, neighbour or friend. One in three people over 65 will die with dementia and the average age of a patient in an acute hospital is 75.
People with mental health problems who use NHS services describe being treated with disrespect, or as a nuisance, both when presenting in an emergency and during more routine interventions. This campaign is about getting people in the NHS to listen to people who have suffered from mental ill health, and getting people in the NHS who have suffered from mental ill-health to speak up. Visit the page now to learn how three simple actions can start to change the world.
