Nursing and Quality

Peter Murphy, Director of Nursing, AHPs and Quality

“Welcome to the Nursing and Quality section of our website. The following pages highlight some of the important roles undertaken by our staff and describe some of the exciting projects currently in progress.

The Trust employs nearly 1,400 qualified Nurses and Midwives and over 700 Nursing Assistants across its six hospital sites in a variety of roles. The organisation is extremely supportive of the valuable contribution that Nurses and Midwives make in delivering high quality patient care and we are actively developing a culture and infrastructure to support innovation at all levels. This is an exciting time for the Nursing and Midwifery profession and within the Trust we are developing our roles to enable the Trust to meet its commitments under the Modernisation Agenda whilst retaining the important essence of Nursing that patients value so much.”
