Top nurses launch new drive to build culture of compassionate care across the NHS

The nation’s top nurses have launched a new drive to ensure values such as compassion and courage are at the heart of the NHS and the public health and care sectors.

They are publishing a new three-year vision and strategy for nursing, midwifery and care staff that aims to build the culture of compassionate care in all areas of practice.

Called Compassion in Practice, it has been drawn up by Jane Cummings, the chief nursing officer for England (CNO), NHS Commissioning Board, and Viv Bennett, director of nursing at the Department of Health.
