Really Proud

All of us at #OTalk/#Occhat are really proud of our fantastic Twitter Community.

Yesterday we heard that #OTalk and #WeNurses were mentioned in a government report relation to the series of Professionalism talks we held in response to Karen Middleton’s Big Conversation (which were supported by BAOT/COT).

This report is the Department of Health’s ‘Patients First and Foremost: The Initial Government Response to the Report of The Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust Public Inquiry’. The report can be read in full here – our nod is on page 31.

We would like to thank ALL of our participants – you can be proud of your contribution to raising the profile of our profession and demonstrating a commitment to open and honest discussion about our strengths and challenges.
