Here are the 5 stories from the final week of the #NHS100Stories campaign. This week featured teams who have; harnessed the ideas of domestic staff to free up nursing time; changed ways of working to improve outcomes for deteriorating patients; built resilience for ‘winter pressures’; created a sustainable care model to provide medical support for children at home and introduced smarter ways of working to reduce burdensome email traffic for clinical staff.
It has been an incredible privilege to be able to share and showcase the achievements of all 100 teams over the past 5 months. The changes these teams have made have made a real difference - either by improving the quality and safety of care for patients or by removing frustrations for colleagues which has freed up time to care.
Everyone involved should be very proud of their work which has impacted upon thousands of patients, visitors and NHS staff - we hope you have been inspired by their stories. A big thank you to everyone who has retweeted these stories on Twitter. All of the 100 stories are being published in a PDF book which will be available very soon.
