The Gathering of Kindness is a Hush Foundation movement focused on bringing together all voices in healthcare to envision and work towards a kinder, safer and better healthcare system for all.  Hush is internationally renowned for its pioneering approach in combining the latest research with the creative arts (original music, theatre, literature, dance, audio-visual and narrative) to support professional learning and culture change. We do things differently, and we make a difference. Join us.
This year’s GoK event theme is:  Reframing Quality and Safety, in recognition of our new partnership with the British Medical Journal and Institute for Healthcare Improvement's International Forum on Quality and Safety. 

Learn more about, and contribute to:
  • The art and science of kindness in enabling positive culture change, safety and wellbeing at work.
  • The link between staff communication, well-being and satisfaction on improved quality and safety for patients and families.  
  • The power of the arts as a tool for supporting wellbeing and learning.
