Jeremy Hunt has asked Camilla Cavendish, Associate Editor and columnist at the Sunday Times, to lead the review, looking at both NHS and social settings.
The review will be looking at:
training and development
leadership, management and supervision
engagement and support
public confidence and assurance
Jeremy Hunt said:
We want everyone receiving treatment to get the most safe, effective and compassionate care. So we need to make sure that staff tasked with carrying out some of the most personal and fundamental jobs have the skills, values and behaviours needed to provide this. Camilla Cavendish has a long standing and strong interest in the quality of care and compassion. She will provide a fresh perspective on the key issues of valuing and supporting the staff to provide care.
If you would like to contribute to the review, or have any queries, you can send an email to the Cavendish Review team. The closing date for contributions to the review will be the 12 April 2013.
