Hello My Name Is – Hello My Name Is, a campaign for more compassionate care


Following Kate’s death in 2016, Kate’s husband and co-founder of the campaign, Chris is keeping the campaign alive through conference talks across the world, book writing, presenting awards and social media – find him on twitter @PointonChris

 A message from Kate about the campaign…

“Hello, my name is Dr Kate Granger MBE and I’m the wife of Chris and the co-founder of the #hellomynameis campaign”

I’m a doctor, but also a terminally ill cancer patient. During a hospital stay in August 2013 with post-operative sepsis, I made the stark observation that many staff looking after me did not introduce themselves before delivering my care. It felt incredibly wrong that such a basic step in communication was missing. After ranting at my husband during one evening visiting time he
encouraged me to “stop whinging and do something!”
