Kate Granger was a consultant geriatrician who learned she had terminal cancer. During her cancer treatment she was struck by the fact that staff often did not introduce themselves to her and by the way this made her feel. She reflected on this with her husband who suggested she do something about it and the #hellomynameis… idea was born. The concept is simple - when you speak with patients, families and carers (and staff) start by introducing yourself with "hello, my name is…."
