Leading Change, Adding Value

Leading Change, Adding Value is a framework for all nursing, midwifery and care staff. It can be used by everyone, wherever you work and whatever your role. It has been developed with a wide range of national organisations, staff representatives, people we care for, carers and the public.

Nursing, midwifery and care staff have a crucial role to play in closing the three gaps identified in the Five Year Forward View – the health and wellbeing gap, the care and quality gap, and the funding and efficiency gap, by ensuring the activities we undertake are of high value. The 6Cs remain the value base in all that they do.

The framework highlights the need to focus on unwarranted variation – variations in health and care outcomes, patients’ experience and use of resources that cannot be justified by reasons of geography, demography, or infrastructure.

Nursing, midwifery and care staff form the largest proportion of the health and care workforce, they have a key, leadership role in delivering a positive impact on outcomes, experience and better use of resources – the Triple Aim outcome measures.

In Leading Change, Adding Value we have a credible collective focus which can be a helpful platform for change. The Summit will have a particular focus on the 10 commitments that relate to innovation and improvement, the search for leadership excellence, culture, personalisation and experience.
