Nursing strategy launched by Trust

Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust marked International Nurses Day on Tuesday with the launch of a strategy which outlines the importance of compassionate frontline nursing care.

Nurses from across the Trust gathered to officially launch the vision, which sees a renewed focus on patients being at the heart of everything nurses do, on high-quality care and the support available to help nurses develop.

Created in partnership with nurses, midwives and health visitors across the Trust, the strategy also showcases the different members of the nursing team and recognises the key role healthcare assistants play in delivering high-quality patient care by renaming them nursing assistants.

The strategy highlights the vital role nurses play, tending to patients’ every need on the wards and in the community.
