Trust employees release music video to encourage humane treatment of NHS staff

12 September 2019

Employees of The Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals (RBCH) have released ‘Humans of our Hospitals’; a video to remind the public they are more than just a uniform.

The video is a remake of the music video ‘Human’ by Rag’n’Bone Man, featuring a variety of staff from the Trust in an effort to humanise the people working in the NHS.

In the NHS annual staff survey of 2018, 14.5% of employees reported they had experienced physical violence from patients, their relatives or the public.

Combined figures researched by trade union Unison and the Health Service Journal from 206-17, suggested that, on average, there were just over 200 reported violent attacks on NHS workers every day.

Team RBCH hope the ‘Humans’ video will help the public to see them as individuals who care, encouraging respect for NHS staff.

Lead singer and PA to the Trust Secretary Office, Carla Neri Dos Santos, said: “I was really happy to take part in the Humans video because we need to raise awareness that Trust employees are more than just a badge and a uniform – everybody contributes so much every day, we need to see people as individuals and celebrate everything that they give to make sure our patients receive the best possible care.”
