The House of Commons Health Committee welcomes the New Role of Nursing Associate

The House of Commons Health Committee say too little attention has been given to retaining nurses in the NHS, which has resulted in more nurses now leaving than joining the professional register, in its report into the Nursing workforce.

"The Health Committee welcomed the introduction of the new role of Nursing Associate and the expansion of career opportunities this brings for Health Care Assistants. The government needs to ensure that these new Nursing Associates have a clear professional identity, which the public understands and recognises".

Chair of the Committee, Dr Sarah Wollaston MP, says
"We met many front line nurses during the course of this Inquiry. We heard a clear message about workload pressures as well as ideas about how to address these. We will return to this subject in a year to make sure that improvements have been made in nurse retention, working conditions, and continuing professional development."
