Caroline Walker with staff from A2
A Nursing Associate from Ward A2 at Peterborough City Hospital has launched a campaign to focus on teamwork and the equal contributions everyone makes to provide outstanding care across our hospitals.
Lauren Woods has created the ‘I’m not just…’ campaign to remind her colleagues of how vital each role within a hospital is in providing good care and a good experience for our patients and visitors.
Lauren has held a variety of different roles within our Trust including a catering assistant, housekeeper, health care assistant and, most recently, a Nursing Associate.
Lauren said: “I wanted to change how people approached me and see past the uniform, instead seeing the various roles and team supporting the care of patients throughout the hospital.
“I created the ‘I’m not just…’ campaign to make people aware that it’s not about the uniform we wear, it’s the impact we can make together as a team.”
The ‘I’m not just…’ campaign focuses on a teamwork and highlights the variety and importance that different roles play in ward teams, and the collective effort staff are making to keep our hospitals safe and clean for patient care.
Caroline Walker, Chief Executive Officer for North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust, which runs Peterborough City Hospital as well as Hinchingbrooke and Stamford and Rutland Hospitals, said: “Lauren’s campaign is truly inspiring and has already struck a chord with her colleagues on Ward A2. We are now planning to share her idea with the rest of our staff in clinical and non-clinical areas across all hospitals in our Trust.
“It’s inspiring to see our colleagues working in different roles and progressing their careers in the NHS. This is a wonderful example of our staff coming together to promote what good teamwork can achieve.”
“Everyone in our Trust has a valuable and equal place in TeamNWAngliaFT and we couldn’t provide outstanding care without the dedication of all our staff and partner organisation colleagues.”
