Staff from Norfolk Community Health and Care NHS Trust (NCHC) have been taking part in NHS Fab Change Week, with the aim of improving outcomes and experience for both patients and staff.
During the week staff have been asked to make a pledge with these aims in mind, demonstrating how simple, individual pledges can add up to make positive changes to working in and being cared for by the NHS.
Izzy Noel, speech and language therapist, said: 'I pledge to listen to problems my colleagues have and to try and think of positive, constructive solutions.'
While health ambassador co-ordinator Paul Martin said: 'I pledge to create more NHS job opportunities through my partnership working with other organisations and to share these experiences as best practice.'
Chief executive Roisin Fallon-Williams pledged 'to spend more time supporting staff to deliver compassionate care in our communities in increasingly creative ways'.
