Let’s get the NHS talking again!

The 19 October 2016 is Fab Change Day, when people all over the NHS and wider health and care system will be taking action to make a difference to patients.  As part of this we will be running a Randomised Coffee Trial and we would love you to take part.

Randomised Coffee Trials (RCTs) are a simple but powerful idea. In an era of electronic patient records and complex workloads, we are talking to each other less. We want to get you talking to each other again.   So we are going to pair people up at random and give them the opportunity to have a cup of coffee and a chat together.  There a lots of benefits to RCTs including breaking down silos, getting people to connect and learning from each other.  Hundreds of organisations across the public, private and voluntary sectors have introduced RCTs with great results and we’d like to do it too!

What kind of Randomised Coffee Trial do you want to take part in?

There are three types of RCT that you can set up and/or take part in, all based on the same principle of getting the NHS talking again. You need to decide which type of RCT you want. You can choose one type or all three types:

  1. Set up your own RCT across your organisation or system
  2. Organise a RCT at your conference or meeting
  3. Take part in the countrywide RCTs for people with a shared passion or interest
