New virtual ‘institute’ to raise standards of care at Nottingham’s hospitals
Nottingham’s hospitals has launched a new virtual ‘institute’ designed to raise standards of nursing and midwifery care.
The Institute for Nursing and Midwifery Care Excellence will bring together training, education, professional development and research programmes at Nottingham University Hospitals (NUH) NHS Trust.
It means that nursing and midwifery staff at the Queen’s Medical Centre and Nottingham’s City Hospital will develop new training based on the latest clinical practice. They will also be actively involved in researching and developing new treatments for a range of conditions.
NUH hopes that the Institute, which launched on Thursday (June 15), will lead to a better quality of care for patients.
Mandie Sunderland, chief nurse at NUH, said: “The Institute is a key development on our journey to provide excellence in nursing and midwifery care.
“We are excited to bring together professional education, research and innovation across our services and to work with partners to develop an international reputation.
“This is good news for nursing and midwifery and great news for patients and their families across the East Midlands who will benefit from the very best care.”
Around 6,000 nurses and midwives work across NUH, including at Ropewalk House in the city centre.
