6Cs get souped up with 10 new commitments

  • Comment

We are all familiar with the 6Cs, which aim to support staff to deliver excellent care and which put people at the heart of everything they do.

Since they were launched in 2012, the 6Cs have given nurses and midwives a vocabulary to help articulate the fundamental values that underpin their care for patients.

In May 2016, NHS England launched a framework for nursing, midwifery and care staff, Leading Change, Adding Value, which builds on the principles of the 6Cs. It provides 10 aspirational commitments that cover topics ranging from public health and patient choice to research and use of technology. The commitments were compiled using feedback from more than 9,000 healthcare professionals and they capture what matters to them. You will be hearing more about these in the coming months as they can be applied in any healthcare setting.
