Our mission is to humanise healthcare. We believe high quality care is compassionate towards patients and their families, and we work with organisations and care teams to find ways to improve the quality of care. But we also recognise that there needs to be compassion towards staff within the health and care system. Evidence shows that staff face intense pressures at work, and need to be well supported if they are to provide compassionate care.
because patients are always anxious and vulnerable, so small acts of kindness often make the biggest difference to them
