Who is Bob?

Saturday, July 11, 2020 |

Like most people, you’re probably wondering why we’re called BOB. Who is BOB and what’s BOB got to do with shared learning?

Well I’m glad you’ve asked! BOB is the colleague in an organisation who has institutional memory, they’ve been there for, let’s say, nine years. They are the go-to person you turn to and ask “Have we done something like this before?”. They can delve back through their records to share their learnings and ‘how to’ tips to help you.

So, in answer to your question, BOB is a moniker for all the innovative, forward-thinking and caring NHS workers helping make change happen on the ground, bringing their ideas UK-wide at the click of a button for others to learn from so that no one has to reinvent the wheel in order to deliver a similar project. You might even be the BOB in your own organisation.

Whether your change is big (like service re-design) or small (like streamlining administrative forms), be a BOB and share your story. Don’t worry if you’re not sure how, our writing engine will guide you through the process.

So any NHS staff member can be a Roberta or Robert, or just plain BOB.
