Time to prioritise wellbeing
I am thrilled to be contributing to this edition of the BJN Nutrition Supplement in association with the National Nurses Nutrition Group (NNNG).
The NNNG committee has undergone some changes recently, saying fond farewells and thank yous to Claire Campbell and Jo Wakeling as their terms end and welcoming new members Ben Booth, Sarah Brownlie and Charlotte Rubio. We all look forward to greeting you in person at the NNNG conference on 13-14 June in the beautiful city of York (see the website at https://nnng.org.uk for more details).
Angela Cole and I are very excited to be embarking on our first session of the Restore, Reflect and Regain Programme (a programme using clinical supervision models to care for nutrition nurses caring for patients), with all six places filled by NNNG members. We look forward to updating you on the programme later in the year.
Reflecting on recent months, pressure points are being highlighted in so many sectors, not least healthcare, with ambulance staff, nurses and junior doctors striking. The challenges of engagement and negotiation experienced by professional bodies and government officials appears to be filtering through society, touching the everyday lives of most of us throughout the country. In the NHS we face the re-scheduling of appointments and procedures or taking the personal decision to strike.
