Deputy Director Primary Care Nursing and NextGen Nurse, NHS England
Paul Vaughan, Deputy Director, RN, MSc. – Primary Care Nursing and NextGen Nurse Paul works with NHS England/NHS Improvement as the Deputy Director – Primary Care Nursing and NextGen Nurse. Previous Paul was a Director of Nursing, Transformation within the organisation. Currently, the focus of his role is on general practice nursing and leading the national initiative on the perception of nursing known as NextGen Nurse. Paul led the development and implementation of the GPN Ten Point Plan and continues to work to ensure the voice and contribution of general practice nursing is valued and further developed in the new NHS system architecture. The Getting to Equity programme, a component of NextGen Nurse has been devised by Paul and Carol Cooper, Director, Global Talent Compass. It provides an evidence-based framework that enables executive white leaders to promote the careers of aspiring ethnic minority nurse leaders and midwives to connect and build on existing talent that otherwise would have been missed or may not have had the opportunity to grow into senior or executive NHS leadership positions. Paul also leads the NextGen schools work which encourages young people from all walks of life to take up nursing as their career of choice.
