Meet the people using social media to make a difference


28 / 5 / 2014 9.13am

Back in March we announced we were working with HSJ and Nursing Times to celebrate healthcare’s social media pioneers – those whose blogs, posts and tweets influence and provoke debate, and who are using social media to effect and drive change within the service.

This list, the first of its kind, is now available and highlights the work of clinicians, patients and families who have used social media as a powerful force for change and as a way to inspire, campaign, spread best practice and raise awareness.

They are an intentionally diverse bunch - doctors, nurses, patients, relatives, managers - and each has used their online presence to connect with people at all levels and from all backgrounds. That is one of the wonderful things about social media: its ability to flatten hierarchies and destroy boundaries.

You can download a free PDF version of the supplement here.
