Hello and welcome to this week’s message. I’d like to talk about the simple but very powerful act of kindness and how the smallest gesture can make the biggest difference to patients, carers, families and colleagues. If we then ‘pay it forward’ we can spread this far and wide and create a culture naturally populated with those small acts of kindness and compassion that really do make for a happier working environment, patient experience and boosts health and wellbeing.
We know that January is one of the busiest and most challenging months for the NHS and experience at ASPH bears that out, so it’s even more important that we focus on caring for each other as well as for patients.
So this is a perfect opportunity to talk about kindness and what ASPH are doing to help support colleagues with their mental health and wellbeing during 2020 and beyond.
