All-party group to examine how UK can contribute to global nursing

A panel of MPs are gathering evidence until February 12 ahead of a new report on how the UK can contribute to international nursing

A review of how the UK can contribute to the development of nurses and nursing around the world was opened this week by parliament’s all-party group on global health.

MPs from all sides of the house will be supported during their investigation by the RCN and the World Health Organization (WHO).

Issues expected to come under the spotlight include education, recruitment, retention, role definition and regulation – as well as nurse numbers, capacity and finances.

The group will not cover these topics in detail but will focus on the areas in which the UK can make a difference to global nursing, as identified in its recent report, The UK’s Contribution to Health Globally.

A call has been made nationally and internationally for written evidence of accounts, opinions and experiences to inform the investigation.

All evidence must be submitted by February 12.
