The South East's regional planning event was full of enthusiasm and lots of excitement with a little trepidation. However, we needn’t have worried as it was very inspiring. People want to be a part of something big! Something exciting, that’s never been done before. More than anything people want to feel connected and part of something memorable. It’s all about their experience their ideas their stories.
Safe and effective staffing means so much to members and it showed, ideas and discussions were very passionate and focused. There were representatives from students, newly qualified, healthcare assistants and nurse leaders all giving their experience and knowledge. Very impressive. Everyone in the room agreed to sign up to being involved with the campaign and become active members going forward.
There is so much more to safe staffing than numbers. Leadership, cultures and positive work environments are all significantly important but hard to maintain in the face of staff shortages.
If you want to stay connected to the work we are doing, sign up now, for updates on the campaign as we move forward.
