Nurses in Social Care Network - Surrey and Sussex

Wednesday 29th September 3pm to 4.30pm

The role of the nurse working in social care is a highly skilled one, requiring an in-depth knowledge of long-term conditions. Nurses working in care homes may at times be the only qualified person on a shift, managing complex nursing care and having supervision responsibilities for staff, as well as overseeing the general facilities and running of the home. Nurses working in home care equally have a huge amount of responsibility often making difficult clinical decisions in lone working situations.

You do an amazing job and never more so than during the pandemic. You should therefore be proud to say that you are social care nurses providing nursing care that not only improves quality of life, but prevents deterioration and, when the time comes, supports people at the end of life.

We are therefore keen to provide support for you through a "Nurses in Social Care Network" covering Surrey & Sussex.

During this first session we can identity what would be useful to you and how to further develop the network.
