The campaign also means that workers on different shifts who normally never meet can share in each other’s achievements.
She said: “They go into their job to do them well, to support, or care for others. It’s reignited that passion.”
She added that it’s not only staff who share their thoughts, but patients too.
“People also tell us about their experience and help us make changes,” she said. “We are doing really well. This encourages staff who work really, really hard.”
