Nurses from across the Hull and East Riding will help to unveil a shared vision for working together on Monday 1 February 2016.

The vision sets out how local nurses, midwives and leaders in health will work together to ensure that patients always receive safe, high quality care and how this partnership plans to empower nurses and midwives in the region to be confident and innovative in practice.

Sarah Smyth, NHS Hull Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), Director of Quality and Governance/Executive Nurse said: “The launch of the nursing and midwifery strategy for Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire is pivotal in defining how we continue to provide safe, high quality care across the region.”

“As a partnership, we continually work together to ensure patient safety is at the centre of everything we and our teams do, and that we are fit to face future challenges. I’m confident that the strategy will lead to further positive practice across all of our organisations.”

Paula South, East Riding CCG Director of Quality and Governance/Lead Nurse said: “There are a number of reasons for producing this plan – the increased expectations of our patients, families and carers and our mission to provide quality care that is safe, effective and personal.”

“Ultimately we want to improve the quality and range of our services and ensure we reach the highest possible standards for the benefit of all our patients. To achieve this, along with the strategy objectives, we will deliver a clear plan that is meaningful and measurable.”

The partnership, made up of NHS Hull CCG, East Riding of Yorkshire CCG, City Health Care Partnership CIC, Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust, Humber Foundation Trust and

Spire Hull and East Riding, consulted with nurses and midwives across the region to develop the shared objectives of the strategy, ensuring that those working in the profession had their say in the shared goals.

Nursing leaders for the future

The celebration of the nurses’ and midwives’ work, plus the opportunity to develop leadership and share best practice across the region, was shown as a key priority through the consultation.

Lynda Whincup, City Health Care Partnership CIC (CHCP) Director of Quality and Non-Medical Professions said: “It is important to recognise not only the importance of working together, but also the hard work of local nurses and midwives. We know the health professionals working in the region make an incredibly positive impact to the patients they see, and we want to celebrate that”

“A large part of the strategy is also about ensuring training and development opportunities are open to the nurses and midwives in the region. We hope in time, Hull and the East Riding will become a centre of excellence for nursing and midwifery through the work we’re planning across the partnership.”

The strategy, which will be share with nurses and midwives working across the area, is complemented by a ‘what you need to know’ version for patients and the public.

Sarah Smyth added: “Patients and the public can feel reassured that the highly skilled nurses and midwives across the region are always working to ensure they provide safe, high quality care.”
