A group of our staff told their own powerful personal stories in a series of videos being used for learning across the NHS and beyond.
The Staff Voices video has formed part of NHS England’s DNA of Care project which is being shared for learning across the NHS.
Organisation development practitioner Louise Samuel, one of the staff members involved, said: “This was an opportunity for staff to spend time reflecting on stories which had happened in their professional life, through the use of story circles the staff members involved were encouraged to bring a story they had experienced whilst working within the NHS.
“While the event was emotional for staff to recall some of the stories by the end of the event all the staff expressed their gratitude for being given the chance to discuss these stories which had stayed in their memories.
“All of the staff who attended recognise the importance of storytelling and how these short videos can provide a much needed insight into life within the NHS.”
