Caremakers compassion in practice

03 / 4 / 2014 3.32pm

We are delighted to announce that more than 1,000 health and social care professionals from across England have signed up as Care Makers in the programme’s first year of operation, pledging to spread the principles and practice of the ‘6Cs’ throughout the health and care services.

The programme, which sees staff acting as frontline ambassadors for the national strategy for nursing, midwifery and health care staff Compassion in Practice, was developed along a similar model to the 2012 Olympic Gamesmakers. The energy and passion which volunteers brought to the London Olympics has been translated into an inspirational drive within the health and social care workforce for individuals to commit to implement the 6Cs and inspire colleagues to do the same.

The programme now includes a network of doctors, a finance director and a hospital chaplain among its number, as well as clinicians, support staff and students from a wide range of disciplines.

It doesn’t stop there, the programme will continue to grow, recruiting new Care Makers across the country as it strives to embed the 6Cs and Compassionate Practice throughout health and care services.

Find out more about the programme and how to apply.
