Happy App team

The Happy App has been shortlisted in the Staff Engagement and Acute Sector Innovation category at the 2016 Health Service Journal (HSJ) Awards in partnership with de Poel health + care, to be held on 23 November at Intercontinental O2, London.

For 35 years the HSJ Awards, have recognised, celebrated, and promoted the finest achievements in NHS, and showcased them to the service's most influential leaders.

The 'Happy App' is a tool that staff can use to quickly capture their mood and provide more information about what is going right or wrong. 

The app was developed after two consultants, Andy Hollowood and Anne Frampton, decided to find a way of exploring the link between staff satisfaction and patient outcome. They wanted to develop a method of gauging staff morale and encouraging colleagues to give feedback to their local managers to help them address issues as quickly as possible. Their work to develop the app has gone alongside other work within divisions to improve staff engagement.
