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.

Here's the round up from Week 9 of the #NHS100Stories campaign - another rich mix of inspiring stories from Specialist, Acute, Mental Health and Community Trusts. Two of the teams featured this week have created useful web-based resources. The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust have produced a YouTube video tutorial to teach colleagues how to 'sign' #hellomynameis; and Gloucestershire Care Services have developed a web site for their rebranded Sexual Health Service

Over the past year, The Rotherham NHS FT have started adoption of LiA as a way of working to help engage with and unblock the way for colleagues. After a year of learning they are now taking this to a whole new level, using LiA to connect people around some of the most important opportunities to improve patient care.  

In an inspirational step forward, NHS staff across Rotherham are leading the way nationally as they learn to introduce themselves to patients using sign language. Earlier this year, The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust signed up to Kate Granger’s ‘Hello my name is…’ campaign as part of the collective launch/boost across more than 100 organisations organised by the national Listening into Action (LiA) Team
