The Being Better, Together podcast is a collaboration between Learning from Excellence and Civility Saves Lives. The podcast is a series of conversations with people who inspire us, about making healthcare a better place to work. We cover a wealth of topics, from workplace cultures, through inspiration, laughter and joy, to appreciative inquiry and how do work safely.  Abridged recordings of some of the conversations were played in the #LfE4 conference in October 2021; the podcast contains the full recordings, as well as a host of additional material.

From Monday 17th Jan 2022, you can listen to the podcast below and/or subscribe via your usual podcast player.
