Views sought on new vision for nursing

A proposed new vision for nursing, midwifery and care-giving sets out the values of compassionate care and asks how they can be developed further across health and social care.

Over recent months, Viv Bennett, director of nursing for the Department of Health, and Jane Cummings, chief nursing officer for England, have been talking to care givers across the country to start to understand what the new vision and strategy for nurses, midwives and care-givers should look like, and what values unite the profession.

They now want to hear your views on the issues contained in the draft vision to inform the strategy for the development of the nursing, midwifery and care-giving professions.
