Moving speech and language outreach to where need is greatest

By | 06 March 2015|Categories: 100 Days of Change|

I am a speech and language therapist working in Lincolnshire. My remit as well as leading the language outreach team is to support the team of twelve speech and language therapy assistants who work across the county. Lincolnshire is a huge county and in the past certain areas have received more speech and language therapy sessions than others making for an inequitable service delivery. By encouraging assistants to work more flexibly and to move to where need is greatest on a regular basis, this has allowed the county to be looked at as a whole.

Micro-volunteering

By | 04 March 2015|Categories: 100 Days of Change|

I run an initiative called Help From Home that promotes and encourages people to participate in bite-sized microvolunteering actions. Microvolunteering is easy, no commitment, on-demand actions that can be completed in under 30 minutes, and which benefit worthy causes.

Talent for Care

By | 04 March 2015|Categories: 100 Days of Change|

Talent for Care is a national strategic framework that is making a difference to the development opportunities available to the support workforce in the NHS. Through improving the education, training and development for support staff, we expect to see an increase in the quality of patient care and a more flexible workforce for organisations, as well as recognising the value and vital role of the support workforce.

Addressing bullying in the NHS

By | 03 March 2015|Categories: 100 Days of Change|

I identified that there was a need to address endemic bullying in the NHS, so I created a collection of research and information on how we could tackle bullying within the NHS. I researched best practice, sources of help and support and I collated case studies.

Making training accessible to all

By | 01 March 2015|Categories: 100 Days of Change|

My action for NHS Change Day is I’m going to challenge and actively support training within the NHS to become more inclusive, specifically around visual, and hearing impairment and dyslexia. I want to widen access to our training, and ensure that it is adapted so that it meets the needs of everyone.
