Hello and welcome to the Academy of Fabulous Stuff
Thanks to a lot of hard work, enthusiasm and effort, last year your support made FabChange-Day probably the most successful we’ve seen.
More pledges, more ideas and following the #Doathon-Day, more ideas into action, shared across the NHS. You have told us you want to make it even better by turning it into a week of change, focussing on the real changes that are in place, building on the #Doathon outcomes that can be replicated across the NHS.
With your help, we want to act on your comments and suggestions to take FabChange Day to a new level. Read more about what’s coming up here.
