1 Implementing the Dignity Challenge Eileen Sills CBE Chief Nurse/Director of Clinical Services Guys & St Thomas NHS Foundation Trust

2 Where to Begin Support from the Board and Executive Team Over coming the cynicism Drip feeding information to senior staff from: –Patient feedback surveys –Complaints –Patient choice Not seeing Dignity as a separate project, but intertwined in everything we do Executive leadership Dont be overwhelmed

3 What did we do at GSTT Staff briefings, without setting expectations We used our Fridays with a difference initiative to raise awareness We asked for volunteers from across the trust to participate in 10 working groups to look at each challenge We randomly selected staff into each group, identified a lead and gave then freedom to go away look at the challenge and do a stock take of what was happening within each challenge Each group is feeding back their findings over the next 3 months Themes will then be identified and work will begin

4 All members of the group signed up as dignity champions Trust wide communication This has become a Trust priority with Board commitment

5 Key Messages Dont make it difficult, start small, recognise what is already happening and build on it Its often the small things that make the biggest difference to our patients Put dignity at the heart of everything you do, its not a separate initiative You need executive leadership or sponsors to make this happen
