Local work - STP footprints
Each of the five London Sustainability and Transformation Partnership footprints have been offered support from CapitalNurse to embed the pan-London work in their areas, and to develop local initiatives that support the delivery of the CapitalNurse vision.
In the NCL footprint North London Partners, a Nurse Director has been in post since December 2016 to drive forward a range of initiatives to embed the pan-London work and also to work alongside the HR leadership to support the delivery of the nursing components of the STP workforce plan. Through this work 14 initiatives have been set up. These include leadership development; recruitment, including through a student employment offer retention, including a network of career clinics sector wide; and flexible nurse friendly working, including looking at more flexibility and awareness of the needs at work for longer servicing nurses (50+).
As well of continuation and embedding of the work to date, in the NCL footprint, they plan to look at a sector wide approach to international employment, and to embed the pan-London CapitalNurse products locally.
NEL is currently appointing a senior nurse who can progress CapitalNurse in the NEL footprint.
Health Education England in NWL has focussed on supporting rotational foundation programmes for nurses which has had a significant impact on achieving collaborative working within and across organisations whilst also shedding more light on why nurses might choose (or not choose) this route to employment and highlighting the cultural change work required to embed this approach to maximise benefits.
In 2018 CapitalNurse hope to get a senior nurse leader in NWL who can progress wider CapitalNurse in the STP footprint.
In 2018 CapitalNurse hope to get a senior nurse leader in SEL who can progress CapitalNurse in the STP footprint.
In SWL a senior nurse leader was appointed in January 2018 who will be leading the progression of CapitalNurse in the SWL footprint, both for embedding of the Pan-London initiatives, and developing and testing local initiatives that align with the CapitalNurse vision.
Focus areas of the work include leadership, supporting nurses in early stages of their career and engagement.
