The NHS is not exactly passionate about simplicity.
Here are two ‘easy to remember, rolls off the tongue’ titles of NHS organisations. I was just trying to picture the staff name badges – they must be a metre wide!
Here goes …deep breath ….
In second place …. 9 Words!!
"Central Manchester and Manchester Children’s University Hospitals NHS Trust"
And the winner is …. 11 words!!
"Bedfordshire and Luton Mental Health and Social Care Partnership NHS Trust"
This is the longest title I’ve come across so far in the NHS.
Mmmmm .. I have to ask myself are these titles meant to convey user friendliness for patients and the public. If that is the intention I don’t think they are achieving their objective do you?
Can you come up with a title of an organisation more than 11 words anywhere in the world?
If not I will unofficially award "Bedfordshire and Luton Mental Health and Social Care Partnership NHS Trust" with a gong as the longest organisation title in the world!!
