Detail

The Nursing and Care Quality Forum, which aims to improve the quality of nursing care across all care settings, met Prime Minister David Cameron and Health Secretary Andrew Lansley today to discuss the work the Forum will deliver.

The independent Forum will begin its work by identifying and supporting the spread and adoption of best practice across four areas:

  • how to promote and achieve accountable and empowered nurse leadership across the system
  • how to make sure that the right culture and the right values that put patients first prevails at all times
  • how best to involve, listen to, hear and respond to feedback from patients
  • how to make sure that those providing care have the time to do so properly.

Across all four of these themes, the Forum will consider the knowledge, skills and educational needs of staff providing nursing and care to people. It will engage patients, staff, carers and professional experts, and aims to capture the experience and views of as many people as possible.

The Forum, which is chaired by Sally Brearley, is made up of a range of expert voices, including front-line nurses working in hospitals and the community, patient representatives and members of professional bodies and voluntary sector organisations.
