The original idea for the Care Maker programme was to focus primarily on student and newly qualified staff, to harness energy and enthusiasm right at the start of their healthcare career. The intention was always to widen the programme to more experienced staff, but as we've received such a great response so far, we've brought this decision forward!
Jane Cummings supported this at our welcome event in Leeds on 23 October, so with that green light we're updating the website to reflect that all nurses, midwives, allied health professionals and healthcare assistants in the NHS and social care, can now apply at any stage in their career.
So, tell your senior staff, point them in the direction of the application form, and help them to join the growing Care Maker family!
