NHS Change Day has been shortlisted for the global award, Leaders Everywhere Challenge. The NHS Change Day campaign is the only one to be shortlisted from the UK and is the only healthcare campaign shortlisted from around the world!

One of the key criteria in the final judging is how many individuals review, comment and rate the award entry. This is a plea to all Care Makers and those 1.5 million across the NHS to continue to support one of the biggest days of collective action and to take the day to a global level.

The purpose of NHS Change Day was to harness the creativity, innovation and energy of 1.5 million people who work for and with the NHS by mobilising a grass roots movement of people. The aim was to gain 65,000 online pledges for personal acts of change and improvement in patient care - 1,000 pledges for each year since the NHS was established.

The campaign smashed this target and receiving a staggering 189,000 online pledges of action and subsequent actions for change.

This is a fantastic achievement for an NHS grassroots movement, but in order to win, the campaign needs your support to show the judges what a difference the day made!
