Introducing the SHSC Nursing Plan

The SHSC Nursing Plan for 2023 to 2026 is here!

Our nursing plan outlines our strategic approach to attracting, retaining, developing and leading the nursing profession in SHSC.

Our plan is important to us because it outlines the approaches and developments that will bring about improvements in patient care and joy at work for nursing professionals.

This plan is for both our registered workforce and our health support workers.

We know that job satisfaction is key to nurses and nursing colleagues remaining in the profession and working at SHSC.

This plan was brought together in 2022 through different consultation exercises and builds four key priority areas for action:

  • Delivering the highest standards of professional practice
  • Ensuring person-centred care through continuous improvement
  • Inspiring and supporting professional development across nursing roles and structures
  • Attract and retain a diverse nursing workforce by being an employer of choice in the region

Many of the actions align with the Chief Nursing Officer for England's priorities and speak to the wider NHS People Promise.

We look forward to working with all our nursing colleagues in 2023 to 2026 in implementing this strategy.
