All in a week's work

It’s two years since the health service first translated our values into specific behaviours and started a movement to make sure that they are not just words but become the core of our health service culture. There are now over 1,000 Values in Action Champions around the country working with colleagues to spread the nine Values in Action behaviours across the health service. From October 15th-21st we’re marking this milestone by asking even more people to get involved, starting with All in a week’s work.

This week is a celebration of our progress to date and a chance for you to get involved and help make a difference in shaping the culture in the health service. During this week you and your colleagues can check how visible the behaviours are in your workplace and acknowledge when you see colleagues living the behaviours.  Join in, have some fun, and help shape the culture of the health service for the better.  

Please get in-touch if you have any questions.
