NHS Change Day

Thanks to NHS IQ website

The countdown has begun to NHS Change Day 2015 on 11 March. It is hoped that Change Day 2015 can surpass both the 189,000 pledges of action made in 2013 and the phenomenal 500,000 made by individuals, teams and whole organisations last year.

Change Day is a grassroots movement for change backed by the NHS but instigated, developed and managed by frontline staff throughout the country.

It began with a single tweet two years ago and since then has grown into a remarkable success story.
