Announcing our FabAmbassadors
The Academy started on Valentine’s Day 2015 and since then there have been over half a million page views of the fabulous stuff people have shared, showing us what they are doing at the front line, in the board rooms, the community and primary care. More recently we have joined with social care to bring together the work they are doing in partnership with the NHS. We are also featuring the work of the Vanguards and ECIST and expect to do much more soon.
What started as an idea has turned into a social movement of people who are keen to know what good looks like and do it… often better!
Four thousand people a day look at and search the Academy website. Not just from the NHS in England but world-wide. We are a virtual Academy; exploiting the power of social media to reach likeminded people who have an interest in innovation.
However, we do have something missing … FabAmbassadors
We have come to realise we need people on the ground, at the frontline and spread across the NHS primary care and social care, who share our passions and can be a ‘Face of the Academy’.
What’s a FabAmbassador?
FabAmbassadors are enthusiasts, who can use social media, help and encourage colleagues and others to tell us about the good things they are doing and give them any technical help they might need to share it.
FabAmbassadors are familiar with the shares on the Academy website and can suggest how they might provide ideas and solutions where you work and in your circle.
FabAmbassadors will be key and instrumental in FabChangeDay Oct 19th and will work locally supporting FabChangeDay Campaigns.
