Every patient, every doctor, every social worker has a story.

When we use health and social care services, these can be some of the darkest days of our lives. When we need our doctors, nurses, receptionists or social workers the most, we expect them to be at their best. Every day. 

Sometimes we fail to see the men and women who work tirelessly to provide world class health and social care in a busy, challenging and constrained working environment. We see these men and women as a job; a uniform; as part of the system. 

On top of this, we don’t see the thousands of people working to support the front line of delivering care. Every patient, every doctor, every social worker has a story.

To start a different type of conversation about what health and social care means to people, Spark the Difference is hosting an art exhibition in May 2016 to share stories from some of the humans of healthcare.


The exhibition is free and open to all. Please help us spread the word.
