£140 million for nurses and midwives to improve care and beat bureaucracy

The Prime Minister and Health Secretary today set out plans to invest £140 million so that NHS nurses and midwives can spend more time with patients, not paperwork, and provide safer care.

£100 million will be offered to the NHS for nurses and midwives to spend on new technology that will free up time for patient care and help make essential patient details instantly available on the ward, at the bedside or in the community. Nurses and midwives, whether they work in a hospital, in the community or in another care setting, will decide what kit is best for their own workplace.
