Dr Kate Granger: 'I felt like I was just a diseased body'

A campaign by a terminally ill doctor to encourage healthcare staff to introduce themselves to patients is being supported by more than 90 NHS organisations.

Dr Kate Granger, a 31-year-old hospital consultant, started the "Hello my name is..." campaign while she was being treated for cancer.

She felt frustrated by staff who failed to tell her their names and said that, at times, she ended up feeling like she was "just a diseased body in a hospital bed".
