Roy visits NHS trust

NHS workers across Northumberland have vowed to make a ‘fab’ difference to patient care as part of a national day of action.

For NHS Change Day – dubbed #FabChangeDay – last week, Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust staff pled-ged their support and committed to make one positive change in the workplace, as well as turn ideas into action.

To celebrate these pledges, NHS commentator and founder of ‘The Academy of Fabulous NHS Stuff’ Roy Lilley visited the trust’s specialist emergency care hospital near Cramlington to meet staff and hear about The Northumbria Way, its continuous journey of improvement.

Trust staff also took part in a cycle challenge on the day to illustrate its ‘cycle of change’.
