“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.”

York City Knights have been forced out of business following discussions with Rugby League officials.
The club which has been involved in a troubled ground share with York City says the council has breached its contract for the team to use Bootham Crescent.
It comes after council called off the Knights’ opening Super 8s clash against Doncaster on Sunday - citing concerns that the pitch would suffer.
The Knights have a contract to play matches at Bootham Crescent until both clubs move into the new community stadium. That arena is being built at the site of the club's old Huntington Stadium.
In a statement tonight, the club's board said it has done everything it can to resolve the matter with the council and now has no option but to fold.
It is with sincere regret that we are to announce that York City Knights will be closing as a business once all legal formalities and obligations have been carried out, which will allow all the players and staff to become free agents.
This is done with deep sadness, but with the certainty that we did everything in our power to last through the challenging times since our eviction from the Huntington Stadium in 2014 and the difficult circumstances the club has experienced ever since. The Board of Directors now have no alternative and have been forced to make this very difficult decision.
Rain for some tonight, sun and showers tomorrowRead the full story ›
