Proud of Nursing & Midwifery in Newcastle

“Growing our future together”

Launched in 2016, this is the third Strategy branded as ‘Proud of Nursing & Midwifery in Newcastle’ and it builds on the excellent progress and contribution of staff in delivering our ambitions for our patients and our staff.

Changes in patient demographics continue to evolve with increasing numbers of frail elderly patients requiring care, and changes to the ethnic profile of our patient population, which impact on the needs of patients, and requires different skills and knowledge from the healthcare professionals delivering care to ensure patient needs can be effectively met.   Alongside these NHS, and demographic, changes are many professional changes, including the emergence of the new role of Associate Nurse from January 2017, the forthcoming changes to bursary arrangements for pre-registration training, and the introduction of Revalidation for Nurses and Midwives during 2016.

In these turbulent times a clear way forward is needed and the following Nursing & Midwifery Strategy provides a ‘direction of travel’ to ensure our staff are all working towards the same objectives, to put patients at the heart of all we do, and to ensure safe and effective care - “Healthcare at its very best with a personal touch”.

Please take the time to read this strategy.
