Since the launch of the Care Makers programme, we have recruited 1400 Care Makers and are currently processing over 300 new applications. This is brilliant news and so we can devote our efforts to supporting our existing network, we are making a change to how we recruit future Care Makers. We will now recruit Care Makers twice a year which means that we are closing the application process until June 2015.
What does this mean for me?
If your application form was/is received before noon on Friday 19 September 2014, your application form will be processed and we will confirm if it has been successful (this usually takes 6-8 weeks from sending in your application). Any application received after this date will not be processed until we hold the next recruitment drive.
When will the next recruitment drive be?
We will hold twice yearly recruitment drives – the next will be in June 2015 and then in December 2015.
Promoting the programme at events
We know many of you are doing a fantastic job promoting the programme within your trust and university, please continue to do so. As we will not be recruiting additional Care Makers until June 2015, we will focus our efforts around promoting the 6Cs to all levels and disciplines, with the aim of enhancing patient care throughout health care.
