#KindPositiveNHS now has its own twitter page @KindPositiveNHS so do join, it will be a great place to meet and communicate with like minded people.

What the campaign is all about:

We all appreciate that being kind is a really nice thing to do. And being on the end of an act of kindness can make our day. 

What most people don’t realise though, is that kindness, when combined with positivity dramatically increases our ability to succeed. Personally & professionally.

In other words, you are far more likely to achieve your true potential & help others do the same, if you practice the science of kindness & positivity. 

Interest in kindness & positivity has grown considerably across the NSH over the past 12 months. So much so, that it's become a new social movement!

Colleagues have discovered that, as well as helping build personal resilience in the face of unprecedented challenges. It also helps us to be our best selves. 

We launched the NHS Kindness & Positivity Network on 24th November as part of FabChange2021

We are incredibly proud to be working in partnership with Academy of Fabulous NHS Stuff & NHS England's Wellbeing Team.

The aim of the network is to:
  • Provide training in key kindness and positivity concepts, including a very simple overview of the science involved
  • Provide an opportunity for likeminded people to come together to share lived kindness experiences & learn from each
  • Create & support a network of Kindness & Positivity Coaches across the NHS.

Our call to action is to ‘choose kindness and positivity as a means to be your best self and help others do the same’.

Nicki & Paul are available to deliver kindness & positivity sessions at team meetings or wellbeing events. 

If you would like to discuss their work, or consider scheduling a session, please contact them on the details below.
