Health staff make pledge to improve NHS

NHS staff across East Anglia have been challenged to beat the number of improvement pledges made on last year's NHS Change Day.

The event, on March 3, aims to get as many people as possible to pledge to do one thing to make the NHS better.

Last year, NHS staff in the region made 5,603 pledges, with many more from other healthcare workers, patients and their families. As the countdown begins to March 3, the NHS Change Day team is urging people in the region to beat last year's numbers.

Forty-four people in the region have already pledged to make a positive change.

Adam Kirton, who works as an organisational development manager at Cambridge University Hospitals, said: 'It's always fascinating to see what people would improve about the NHS if they had a magic wand – which is why we wanted to take this regional snapshot as part of NHS Change Day.

'Change Day is the chance for everyone who cares about our NHS – staff, patients and anyone else who values what it stands for – to pledge to do one thing to make it better. It's about making the little things add up to something really powerful.'
