An evening for NHS communicators - internal communications

Community Events
by Touch Design

@NHScommsorg was set up in 2014 to support NHS and other health communicators to share best practice. They have teamed up with Touch Design to organise an event focused on internal communications and staff engagement.

We have six fantastic speakers, who will speak about their work to improve the way their organisation communicates and engages with staff and other internal stakeholders. Rachel Miller, Director of All Things IC (@AllthingsIC) will chair the event.

Alex Bass and Stuart Crichton of the London Ambulance Service (@Ldn_Ambulance) will talk about the closed Facebook group, which was set up in 2013 and recently won an Institute of Internal Communications Award for the best use of internal social media.

Kate Burke, and Jacob Prichard from Milton Keynes University Hospitals NHS Trust (@MKHospital) will be talking about Event in the Tent which utilised the power of brilliant internal communications to inspire and motivate a workforce of almost 4,000 multi-professional staff.

Kate and Jude of West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (@allofusinmind) will share details of their staff wellbeing campaign #allofus, and plans for the future, including a staff app to help keep nearly 5,000 staff up to date across a range of locations.

Rebecca Oakley of Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Foundation Trust (@DCHStrust) will talk about how she has used an ‘old school’ approach as part of the Trust communications and engagement strategy to boost morale and improve engagement with the 5,000 employees the Trust employs over 100 sites.

People who are unable to attend the event can watch it live via Periscope (by following @teamtouchdesign). Alternatively, you can join the conversation on Twitter via @NHScommsorg.
