Vision for nursing

Our vision has the NHS England Chief Nurse’s vision for Compassion in Practice (widely referred to as the ‘six Cs’ – commitment, care, compassion, competence, communication and courage) at its heart. As one of the world’s leading children’s hospitals, we also believe that nurses at GOSH should be aspiring to lead and advocate for children, young people, their families and our fellow children’s nurses globally.

There is a committed team of Nurse Mentors across the wards to ensure that pre-registration nurses are supported whilst in practice.
