As well as state-of-the-art equipment and facilities to improve patient care, we also fund training and development projects for our incredible staff within Nottingham hospitals.
Our ‘Charity Scholars’ is just one example, where we have funded university scholarships for a cohort of 26 new nursing and midwifery students, to further develop their leadership and innovation skills through a degree place at Nottingham Trent University.
The Charity has given £75,000 to help fund these specialist degrees placements on the course BSc in Leading and Innovation in Nursing and Health and Social Care Practice
The new ‘Charity Scholars’ are all existing nursing and midwifery staff at Nottingham Hospitals and will act as ambassadors for the Charity, actively supporting the Charity’s aims and vision to improve care for patients, families and carers across Nottinghamshire.
Our experienced nurses and midwives applied through a highly competitive process for the scholarships, securing a sought after place on this degree programme.
The course will enable them to study innovation and leadership in clinical practice, undertake a work-based improvement project to further develop excellence in care for patients across Nottingham Hospitals, and implement new ideas within their clinical areas.
