How to guide

What is the purpose of this guide?

This guide outlines the case for change, the key principles and the process we based our actions on when embedding a compassion recognition scheme across the West Midlands. Our hope is it will be helpful to you in designing and implementing your own recognition scheme in your own organisation. This guide also provides context around compassionate leadership and why it matters.

Who is this guide for?

  • OD and Leadership leads wishing to introduce a recognition scheme into their own trust.
  • Staff, patients and carers to understand why compassion matters and the wider impact of our actions
  • People wishing to positively influence culture within teams, directorates, organisations and the wider system
