#hellomynameis …. What can I do for this campaign?

This campaign has really struck a chord with me. It was created and publicised by the inspirational Kate Granger (@GrangerKate) who is a doctor, but also a terminally ill cancer patient.
This campaign has inspired health care professionals all over the country to introduce themselves by name before talking to patients. A very simple and common sense thing to do but frighteningly one that is sometimes lacking when health care professionals interact with their patients.
As a NHS trust governor I feel that I am in a good position to raise the profile of this campaign and in the field of Mental Health, in which I am particularly interested I think it would make a huge difference.
So tonight I am canvassing opinion on twitter and hoping to hear of trusts that offer Mental Health services and have signed up to this amazing initiative. I will keep twitter updated and blog again on the subject when I can update more.
