Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals Foundation Trust: Change Champions delivering culture change at Royal Bournemouth & Christchurch Hospitals

The team initiated a culture change programme to improve the working environment for staff, empowering them to provide compassionate and high quality care for patients.

Over 800 members of staff have had at least one leadership development activity since September 2016.

The judges felt that the team radiated enthusiasm for their staff engagement work, which built true confidence among colleagues. They are setting a good environment within their organisations for the continued journey ahead.
