Be proud to care: Nurses’ Day 2015

Colchester Hospital University NHS Foundation Trust has published its strategy, Caring with Pride, to reinforce the pride nurses have in undertaking their roles

An NHS trust is reminding its nurses to be proud to care as it launches its three-year strategy for nursing and midwifery.

To coincide with International Nurses’ Day today, Colchester Hospital University NHS Foundation Trust has published its strategy, Caring with Pride, which is broken down into five core themes: safety, caring, being effective, leadership and people’s needs.

Its commitments include providing greater training in critical illness recognition and encouraging the use of patient feedback.

It also emphasises the importance of being courteous to one another and making time to care.

Associate director of nursing and allied health professionals, surgery, David Thorpe, who is launching the document at the trust’s nursing and midwifery conference today, said: ‘We want nurses to stand up and say that they are proud to nurse, proud to care and proud to be part of the patients’ journeys.’
