The Bonjour/Hello program is a series of tools that allows people working in the health field to inform their patients/clients that they can serve them in French. By wearing a pin or displaying the Bonjour/Hello logo in their workplace, health care professionals are showing their commitment to meeting their patients/clients’ needs and offering safe, quality, patient-centred services.
A number of tools bearing the logo, including pins, posters, stickers for windows, desktop signs and small stickers, among others, are available free-of-charge.
The Bonjour-Hello pin for health students
Réseau Santé has created a special version of its Bonjour-Hello logo for students in health professions. People studying in the health care field at the post-secondary level who speak French can wear the pin to promote the fact that they can serve their patients in French. Students can also take advantage of other resources and initiatives (page in French only).
To order the tools:
The Bonjour-Hello tools can be ordered free-of-charge by people working or studying in the health care field by contacting the regional coordinator at Réseau Santé who is responsible for their region of Nova Scotia or by getting in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 902-222-5871.
