Back in the summer NATH put out a call for nurses working across primary, community and social care to take part in the CARE Programme. A joint initiative between NAPC and NHSEI the CARE Programme is all about developing the leaders of the future, empowering participants and enabling change. 
Despite the challenges faced by the pandemic we were really pleased to have 25 people come forward. Those participating took part in 8 virtual sessions. 4 were looking at themselves as an individual and 4 were about implementing change. At the end of November we held a celebration session and heard from some of the participants and how they had benefited from the experience and the difference it has made.  
 
We were also able to hear some of the fantastic project work that is being developed:  
Jamie from Landermeads care home in Chilwell is developing Makaton lessons to facilitate communication for those he cares for. This project has sparked the interest of the CNO Ruth May who will be supporting!  
Anna told us about how her project will involve social prescribing link workers and improve the care of those living with a learning disability.  
Deb, Kath and Liz are bring primary and community care together to improve care for those living with insulin controlled diabetes. 
Janet's project working with practice staff to educate and inform will increase the number of people taking up the pneumococcal vaccine. 
 
We are really excited to see this enthusiasm and work taking place across our health and social care system. 
 
There is also an impact report which has been published following the CARE Programme in Nottingham & Nottinghamshire.
