Our Man in the U.K.


Rob Tomlinson

Meet Rob Tomlinson from The Royal Blackburn Hospital, UK.

Rob is arguably the most important clinical nurse in the NHS at this point in time, because he is just the sort of role model the NHS needs on their team.

His value extends from the fact that he is an inspired and inspiring clinician; he is an articulate communicator and influencer; and he is a change architect with authenticity, integrity and honesty who has taken on the challenge of improving patient safety through clinician-led culture change.

Rob is best at telling how his journey began.

That he chose 'Below Ten Thousand' as part of his vision is our lucky break.

But we are only a small part of his journey.

All his success is truly due to his hard work, creative problem solving, dedication, commitment and courage.

It is his character strengths that have carried the day.

And by the time he is finished, I dare say that the NHS, and the lucky people who have been inspired to enthusiastically share his quest, will be forever, for the better, changed.

If you meet Rob Tomlinson, be sure to shake his hand.

Because you are in the company of an excellent man.
