Enhancing our workforce: our people and teams: Nurse leadership in primary care
This session brings together senior nurses to discuss developing nursing leaders across primary care and the opportunities available to empower and enhance their careers. NHS England’s Chief Nursing Officer has highlighted the need to strengthen nursing leadership in primary care networks and encouraged PCNs to appoint GPNs as clinical directors. To help achieve this there’s additional funding to support primary care nurses to develop the leadership skills needed to become more actively involved in leading their PCNs.
The panel will discuss what more can be done to increase nurses’ voice, how the profession is responding to PCN opportunities, the latest on the General Practice Nursing 10 Point Plan, how nurses can overcome some of the barriers which have traditionally prevented them from taking leadership roles and the opportunities available to advance their careers and retain their skills within primary care.
