Samuel McPhail, a student nurse at the University of Bradford, has launched a charity single to promote the ‘6Cs’ of quality healthcare – care, compassion, competence, communication, courage and commitment – and to help staff remember them.
The song is now available to download from iTunes and all proceedings will go to his chosen Yorkshire Cancer Care charity.
Sam’s catchy song was produced at no cost with the assistance of the NHS Employers organisation and also Jonathon Wright - a professional composer and film maker who volunteered his time as thanks for the compassionate care he received following a heart attack last Christmas.
Sam is one of over 1,000 ‘Care Makers’ - NHS staff who volunteer to promote and embody the 6Cs laid down in NHS England’s Compassion in Practice three-year strategy in December 2012. The Care Makers programme is run by NHS Employers and began expanding beyond nursing into medicine and other areas in March this year.
