Shape of Caring Review
Patient and public engagement event
Healthcare staff want to strive for safer, better care for patients, but they need preparation, support and development to provide consistently good care. The Shape of Caring Review, led by Lord Willis of Knaresborough, will ensure that throughout their careers, nurses and care assistants receive consistent high quality education and training which supports patient care.
As part of this review, Health Education England (HEE) wants to meet with patients and members of the public to gain their perspective; they would like to speak to patients with long term conditions/their carers, young carers, and 16-18 year olds who are interested in entering a career in health.
A focus group session has been arranged for the evening of the 29th September 2014, from 6-8pm at, BVSC, The Centre for Voluntary Action. Tea, coffee, biscuits and cake will be provided. Places are limited so please register early.
The event provides you the opportunity to make your voice heard on a number of important issues including the training of nurses and care assistants, continuing professional development, mentorship and preceptorship; tell HEE about good practice, what is working, what isn’t and what needs to change.
