The School for Change Agents

Last week the @GreenerNHS took over the School for Change Agents social media accounts.

It was a great opportunity for us to showcase the amazing work that the NHS is already doing to go green and help create a more sustainable future. If you’re interested in hearing more about the other examples of how the NHS is going greener, sign up to the School for Change Agents that amongst a wealth of learning about how to make change happen now has case studies about how to make the NHS Greener, too!💚

It was so wonderful to see the support and love for the content we shared during the take-over! Thank you to everyone who took part and shared with us what they’re doing too, to help create a greener world!

Horizons Highlights

On Friday @BevMatthewsRN joined Tim Ferris (Director of Transformation, NHS England) at @Ldn_Ambulance to learn more about initiatives London Ambulance Service is leading to deliver the highest quality of care and how #SolvingTogether is supporting them with prioritising their approach.

Last week the NHS Horizons team helped to support the #StayandThrive learning and sharing event. The day was a great success – it was a brilliant opportunity for participants to learn more about the brilliant work this growing community are doing and a chance to learn from others too! Here is a picture of the happy faces of the people that helped make it possible.

Top picks from the world of improvements

Featuring experts from the field, Getting Started with Large Scale Change is a six-week course run by NHS England introduces you to the fundamentals of large scale change. It helps you to develop your ability to apply large scale change approaches, tools and techniques to support your organisation’s transformation programmes, COVID-19 recovery plans and your personal development.

The course will run from Monday 9th January 2023 will close on Sunday 19th February 2023. It can be completed at the student’s own pace. To join the course, visit the QI Learning platform if you are not already registered, you will need to do so using the same link. Once you have registered / signed in, you will be able to gain access to the Getting Started with Large Scale Change enrolment page.

Another brilliant reminder and lesson here shared by Helen here about the importance of emotion when implementing change.

This week is #NHSSafeguarding week! If you’re interested learning how you can support those who need safeguarding and how to help them recover you can visit the Future NHS site shared by @KennyGibsonNHS by clicking here.

And finally…

Another important graphic here created by @happiness_hospital about the impact stress can have. There are some coping strategies on the bottom right that you can try to help support you during stressful times.
