Care Makers Hub

Caremakers Jane Cummings

Welcome to the Care Makers Hub!

If you're here it means you're either a Care Maker or you're interested in becoming one, which means you have a passion for ensuring patient-centred, compassionate care and spreading the word about the 6Cs.

In these pages you'll find all the resources you'll need to support you in your role as a Care Maker. It's for you to  share your thoughts, ideas and experiences, to connect with other Care Makers and to find out what's going on where. You can let us know what events you're attending through uploading the details to the events section, you can search for other Care Makers in the Care Makers directory, and you can also offer support and inspiration to other Care Makers by sharing your stories in our 'What do Care Makers do?' section. It's also for us to keep in touch with you about the work we're doing to promote the Care Makers programme and the support we can provide. 

The hub will grow and develop with your input and ours. If you've got any feedback on the hub then please do get in touch by emailing 

NHS Employers and NHS England are proud to be taking the Care Makers programme forward and we thank you for your commitment to being or becoming a Care Maker.

Your passion and enthusiasm for promoting compassionate, patient-centred care is truly inspirational.

Jane Cummings, Chief Nursing Officer England, NHS England
