There’s just under a week to go until NHS Change Day 2014 – the largest single health improvement initiative in the world.
More than 200,000 people including NHS staff, patients and members of the public have already made their Change Day pledge. Up to half a million people are expected to get involved on March 3rd.
The idea of NHS Change Day is simple. The NHS belongs to all of us – and we all have the power to make it better.
Change Day asks each one of us to exercise that power by making one small pledge to improve something about the NHS.
Pledges can be big, small, serious or fun. They range from nurses pledging to smile at every patient to a doctor spending an hour ‘blocked and chocked’ on a spinal board to understand how it feels.
Members of the public are also getting involved in their thousands – pledging everything from making more effort to look after their health to not missing scheduled NHS appointments.
