Nursing in Social Care Setting

25 April 2017

NCF are pleased to see the launch of Teaching Care Home Pilot Impact report which a number of NCF members have contributed to. It is another excellent example of how nurses can and do play a critical role in the delivery of care in residential settings. 

In connection with the launch of the report, Sharon Blackburn, NCF Policy and Communications Director CBE RGN RMN said;

“Care Homes both with and without nursing contribute to the wellbeing of people who reside in them. The skills and expertise that nurses and care staff in this sector have are immense and the people needing to draw on those skills present with multiple complex needs. Nursing in the social care sector needs to be celebrated. The Teaching Care Homes Project has played a significant role in show casing what can be achieved.” 

Last year NCF, in partnership with Skills for Care, highlighted the critical role and contribution of nursing in care homes, and NCF has continued to highlight the potential impact of Brexit on the supply of nurses to the care home sector.
