Join the #mymentor campaign

#mymentor is a new social media campaign which aims to raise awareness of the value of mentoring to men and women across the NHS.

Either male or female, and at a variety of levels, the relationship between a mentor and a mentee can be pivotal in inspiring an individual to recognise their strengths and work on their weaknesses, without giving up along the way – and making a real difference to the NHS.

Helen Birtwhistle, NHS Confederation director of external affairs said: “My mentor allowed me to focus on what was important to me, build confidence, adopt strategies for development and challenge my own preconceptions. I have never looked back. Crucially, none of it involved having to change who I am and what I believed in.”

This is your chance to either say thank you or simply help raise awareness of how mentoring can transform people’s lives.
