How the Leading Change, Adding Value framework enables nursing, midwifery and care staff to transform practice

10 October 2019
Volume 28 · Issue 18

Nursing, midwifery and care staff make up the largest proportion of the workforce across the NHS. In the UK, there are more than 698 000 registered nurses and midwives (Nursing and Midwifery Council, 2018) and more than 1000 registered nursing associates (Health Education England (HEE), 2019), all striving to prevent and tackle health inequalities and improve the care experience for patients, individuals and populations.

The role that nursing, midwifery and care staff play in improving the health and wellbeing of the population and reducing health inequalities should not be underestimated. Between May 2016 and March 2019, the Leading Change, Adding Value (LCAV) framework (NHS England, 2016) aimed to demonstrate and share the leadership and practice that these professionals undertake every day in this time of transformation across all health and care sectors in England.
