As if it were needed – proof that our staff are superstars!
Colleagues recently took part in shooting for a film about Person Centred Visiting – or Flexible Visiting Times – at Forth Valley Royal Hospital.
Director of Nursing Professor Angela Wallace (pictured), Senior Charge Nurses Catriona Addison and Barbara-Anne Niven and nursing students Hannah Schroder and Jennifer Aitken were interviewed for the film, to give an insight into how extended visiting had changed their working day and the effect this has had on patients and their families.
The film was shown during a presentation at the Person Centred Health Care (PCHC) Collaborative which showcased patient-centred work across Scotland.
In a separate initiative, Chris Cairns, Consultant Anaesthesia & Critical Care and Mike Williamson, Microbiology Manager were recently interviewed for a new video series called ‘Bringing About Change’ which explores the personal experiences of front-line staff in improving care with patients. Speaking on a variety of quality improvement and leadership topics, the videos provide insight into some of the excellent improvement work taking place throughout NHSScotland, to bring about change for teams, patients and the wider organisation.
