Keep the Nursing Directorate in the DoH!

Your help is needed!

The Government is to dispense with the nursing, midwifery and allied health professions policy unit.  The loss of the unit comes 3 years after Sir Robert Francis QC criticised the lack of a strong nursing voice in the NHS and called for the profession’s voice to be strengthened.

According to the government, advice will be given by Jane Cummings, Chief Nursing Officer, based in NHS England. With the best will in the world, one person cannot undertake the work that a whole unit does.  Help strengthen this petition by clicking the link below – Thank you!
