I would like to extend my warm wishes this Christmas to all the hard working staff in NHS Borders and in particular to all the nurses and midwives. Every day I have the pleasure of being reminded that the reputation of NHS Borders and our clinical profession is as good as it is because of the dedication of you in your day to day work.
There are many highlights throughout 2015 that I could share with you but in cheesy deference to the season, which I make no apologies, I am going to share only 12 and a partridge in a pear tree.
On my sixth day of Christmas – Nursing style is, the refreshed Code of Conduct
In line with the changes required following the publication of the Mid Staffs Report the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) consulted on and implemented a refreshed Code of Conduct. The Code sets out the standards that nurses and midwives are expected to meet in order to justify the trust that patients and the public place in us. This can be found at http://www.nmc.org.uk/standards/code/.
My 7th moment of 2015 will be posted tomorrow – Sunday 20th December 2015 at 12 noon and will be available through @nhsborders on Twitter.
See you again tomorrow,
