RCN welcomes roadmap for quality healthcare

The Royal College of Nursing (RCN) has described two reports as presenting 'a unique opportunity for nurses to drive up the quality of care across the NHS'.

King's College London published reports yesterday the College described as ‘a roadmap for quality healthcare’.

They were ‘Nurses in Society: Starting the Debate’ and ‘State of the Art Metrics for Nursing: A Rapid Appraisal’.

Dr Peter Carter, chief executive and general secretary of the RCN, said: ‘In July Lord Darzi pledged that nurses would be given the practical tools to improve standards of care – we now have a clear way forward and a nursing workforce which is ready to take up the challenge.

‘Now is the time for the nursing profession to grab this opportunity so that vision can be turned into reality.’
