NHS Finance Thank You

“What really stood out for me was that people working in finance don’t always get much appreciation from their colleagues or managers. One simple but very effective thing we could all do immediately is to start saying ‘thank you’ much more.”

This idea on the One NHS Finance platform has inspired us to start a ‘NHS Finance Thank You’ campaign.  It’s easy to say two words, but a real thank you is about much more than two words. Thank you has a power that can bind people together and increase the mental wellbeing of both the thanker and the thanked.  It’s known that showing gratitude improves mental and physical health, increases people’s ability to empathise and fosters high self-esteem.

We are launching the campaign on Monday 5th July, the same day as the birthday of our wonderful NHS and we want to hear from you.  Please let us know who you would like to thank and the reasons why, this can be done through email, or if you could send in a short video thanking who you would like to show gratitude to that would be fabulous.  We will be having weekly ‘Thank you Thursday’ posts so please send in as many thank yous as you like.

Please email futurefocusedfinance@nhs.net or if easier to send videos via mobile, please send to 07850507389

You can also join in on Twitter with the hashtag #NHSFinanceThankYou or write your thank you messages on the whiteboard page of our National MS Teams group: contact us to request to join.

Gratitude leads to happiness. Happiness is the ultimate positive attitude. Positive attitude begets positive energy, and that is always a good thing.

On this page, you can find some ready made FFF Thank You cards to send with a message to your colleagues. Here are some suggestions of messages to help you get started:
