#hellomynameis is a campaign to encourage and remind healthcare staff about the importance of introductions in the delivery of care. It's not just about knowing someone's name, but it runs much deeper. It is about making a human connection, beginning a therapeutic relationship and building trust. It is the first rung on the ladder to providing compassionate care. (Dr Kate Granger)
