Julia Manning, Chief Executive, 2020health, talked to BBC Radio newcastle about the campaign for doctors to introduce themselves properly. The idea was started on social media by Dr Kate Grainger, a young terminally ill doctor. Julia said medical staff need to remember what its like to be on the receiving end of care, of being a vulnerable patient. Medical staff should not forget their bedside manners even when tired & stressed, as all patients need to feel valued, and there should be no differentiation in bedside manners, whether coming from a porter or consultant. After all its heart the NHS is a caring profession.
