8th day of Christmas - Nursing Style

Main Image

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 eighth day of Christmas – Nursing style is implementing a hybrid version of the model for Family Nurse Partnership (FNP)

Always keen to be at the forefront of innovation NHS Borders is testing the implementation of the first hybrid version of the model for Family Nurse Partnership (FNP). This is an intensive, preventive, home-visiting programme for first time mothers aged 19 or under which ends when the child reaches the age of two. The programme goals are to; improve maternal health and improve pregnancy outcomes, child health and development and parent’s economic self-sufficiency.

My 9th moment of 2015 will be posted tomorrow – Tuesday 22nd December 2015 at 12 noon and will be available through @nhsborders on Twitter.

See you again tomorrow,
