Developing our culture of compassionate care – Jane Cummings

Friday 21 September 2012 saw the launch of the engagement exercise for the Nursing, Midwifery and Care-Giving Vision and Strategy.

The vision and strategy is the starting point in further developing our culture of compassionate care. The documentation examines how nurses, midwives and care-givers can be supported to provide excellent care. At the heart of this are the 6Cs; the six key behaviours and values that encapsulate what we in the caring professions do.

I want to develop the ideas contained in the draft vision and strategy further. To do this I need your input. I need the views of people working in all care settings, patients, those receiving care, their families, carers and the public.

The engagement activity continues to Friday 16 November. Over coming weeks there are multiple opportunities to get involved and provide your opinion. The NHS Commissioning Board hosts a series of webinars and I am speaking at several events and conferences across the country.

We all have the opportunity to make a significant difference.

    Child Care Tuition can be an essential part of any student’s development. Studies have shown that students who attend regular, additional Child Care tuition on average achieve higher results than students who don’t take extra tuition. Child Care Tuition provides the environment in which the student learn friendly, comfortably and supportively, free from the pressures of home or school.
