Kate Granger made 'a huge difference to patients'

The chief executive of NHS Employers Danny Mortimer has paid tribute to Dr Kate Granger:

“We are all deeply saddened at the passing of Dr Kate Granger.

Kate was a truly remarkable and inspirational individual who openly shared her daily battles with cancer, providing a source of strength and inspiration to countless people.

Kate used her experiences to pioneer the #HellomyNameis campaign to remind staff to see patients as people.

The campaign has been adopted across the country, making a huge difference to patients. It will be a profound legacy of her work, along with the Kate Granger Compassionate Care Awards and the countless people she has inspired with her example

She had humility, compassion and warmth in equal measure and will be greatly missed. Our thoughts are with Chris and her family at this difficult time.”
