#Hellomynameis campaigner visit

The co-founder of the #Hellomynameis campaign has visited SaTH as part of events around Dying Matters Week.

Chris Pointon co-founded the campaign with his wife—Dr Kate Granger MBE—who died from cancer in 2016. During her treatment, Kate observed that many of the staff looking after her did not introduce themselves before delivering her care, inspiring the campaign. Following Kate’s death, Chris is keeping the campaign alive through conference talks across the world.

He visited SaTH on Thursday when around 30 staff attended an End of Life Care sharing event at the Transforming Care Institute as part of Dying Matters Week. The event was hosted by Jules Lewis, End of Life Care Facilitator. Jules said: “It was an amazing day. Thank you to all the staff that attended.”
