4 The vision for Nurses, Midwives and Care Staff
Developed in partnership with a range of health professionals, patients and stakeholder groups An eight week engagement process also gathered the views and opinions of a wider audience Through this we defined and agreed a set of values and behaviours that are essential in the delivery of excellent care These are now known as the six Cs – Care, Compassion, Competence, Communication, Courage and Commitment We know that change is required in a number of areas such as recruitment, training, leadership, staffing and measuring our performance We have made a commitment to take action in these key areas to ensure these changes are achievable by everyone, for everyone at every opportunity Vision & Strategy formally launched on 4th December at CNO Conference The vision for Nurses, Midwives and Care Staff

5 6Cs - Values essential to Compassionate Care
Competence Care is our core business and that of our organisations; and the care we deliver helps the individual person and improves the health of the whole community. Caring defines us and our work. People receiving care expect it to be right for them consistently throughout every stage of their life Compassion is how care is given through relationships based on empathy, respect and dignity. It can also be described as intelligent kindness and is central to how people perceive their care Competence means all those in caring roles mist have the ability to understand an individual’s health and social needs It is also about having the expertise, clinical and technical knowledge to deliver effective dare and treatments based on research and evidence Communication Courage Commitment Communication is central to successful caring relationships and to effective team working. Listening is as important as what we say. It is essential for ‘No decision without me’. Communication is the key to a good workplace with benefits for those in our care and staff alike Courage enables us to do the right thing for the people we care for, to speak up when we have concerns. It means we have the personal strength and vision to innovate and to embrace new ways of working A commitment to our patients and populations is a cornerstone of what we do. We need to build on our commitment to improve the care and experience of our patients. We need to take action to make this vision and strategy a reality for all and meet the health and social care challenges ahead
