The #hellomynameis campaign was created by Dr. Kate Granger MBE, a registrar in elderly medicine who had terminal cancer, and her husband Chris Pointon. They started the campaign in August 2013 after Kate became frustrated with the number of staff who failed to introduce themselves to her when she was an inpatient with post-operative sepsis.
