MARK DRAKEFORD SAYS NURSING INNOVATION KEY PART OF NHS FUTURE

21 November, 2011

Mark Drakeford, Chair of the National Assembly’s Health and Social Care Committee, will host the launch of the Royal College of Nursing’s new Time to Care campaign this week.

The campaign offers a range of policy ideas for service improvement based on examples of best nursing practice, innovation and best standards of care.

Mark Drakeford said : “For more than 20 years, nurses have demonstrated an ability to take on an expanded range of activities improving services to patients as a result.  There are some truly inspirational examples of best practice within this campaign.  Over the next 5 years, when money will be much tighter, it is more important than ever to ensure that innovation and new ideas are the driving force for service improvement and that Government takes the lead in making this happen.”

The launch of Time to Care takes place in The Senedd, Cardiff Bay at 12 noon on Wednesday, 23rd November, 2011.
