Join HSJ’s efforts to help spread the Change Challenge message to as many people as possible

HSJ and NHS Improving Quality need your help enabling the NHS to better achieve transformational change. We want to hear from patients, volunteers and NHS staff. We need your to help to do this by spreading the message.

More than 1,500 people have got involved in the Challenge Top-Down Change campaign so far. Launched last month by HSJ, together with its sister title Nursing Times and NHS Improving Quality, the aim is to identify the best ways to help the NHS achieve real and sustainable change.

Using a crowdsourcing platform created by Clever Together we asked what are the barriers to creating bottom-up change within and between NHS organisations.

Over the past three weeks contributors were able to submit their suggestions, comment on others or vote them up or down. More than 7,500 contributions have been made.

For the second phase of this campaign we are asking people to explore further how the NHS delivers change and come up with solutions to the barriers to change as identified by contributors.

To enable as many people to take part in this we are using the social media tool Thunderclap to flood Twitter and Facebook with this important message.

Thunderclap allows a single message to be mass shared, on the same day, and at the same exact time, so it rises above the noise of your social networks.

 To take part simply donate a tweet, Facebook status or Tumblr update to spread this message to as many people as possible and encourage them to submit their suggestions on solutions.  

It takes just five seconds to join this campaign and lend a tweet or Facebook update.
