Nurses in Wales to have roles expanded

Welsh health minister Edwina Hart pledged yesterday that nurses in Wales will enjoy expanded and redesigned roles.

Launching the strategy: Beliefs and Actions, Ms Hart said nurses will achieve more senior positions as more care is delivered outside hospital settings.

The strategy also focuses on patients' right to respect, dignity, choice and compassion.

Each NHS nurse in Wales will receive a card outlining the ‘beliefs and actions' mission statement.
