Nursing and Midwifery Strategy 2017-20
Our new Nursing and Midwifery Strategy sets out our priorities to achieve high quality, patient focused care, over the next three years, to embrace the opportunities the changing landscape presents. It sets out our shared purpose as nurses, midwives and care staff to deliver high quality, compassionate care, and to achieve excellent health and wellbeing outcomes.
The strategy has been developed with wide consultation of nurses, midwives and care staff to understand what is important to them and to agree what they would like to prioritise over the coming months; and also where they would like to focus during the next three years to continue to be a progressive and dynamic service.
In order to deliver demonstrable improvements in care approach, the strategy will focus on four key areas:
- Experience and communications
- Safe, quality care
- Partnerships and efficiency
The strategy is consistent with the overall vision of the trust and the four organisational strategic themes of: quality and safety; finance and performance; people and capability; and facilities and environment ambitions. It also reflects national context and has been informed by the NHS Constitution and the NMC Code of Professional Practice, and aspires to the 10 commitments in Leading change.
