The Power of Practice Nursing podcast series
General Practice Nurses (GPNs) occupy a unique place in primary care and offer unique strengths, supporting patients throughout their lives and naturally linking with community care, mental health and of course GPs themselves.
However, for several reasons, there can still be challenges in recruitment and retention of GPNs in London.
To help address this, we are creating resources under the banner ‘The Power of Practice Nursing – The Future of General Practice Nursing in London’. In this collaborative project from Health Education England, the Healthy London Partnership and NHS England and Improvement, we look at the unique input GPNs bring, share nurses’ experiences, illustrate the strength they bring to primary care, and address some of the challenges in the capital.
To support this, on International Nurses Day 2020 we launch the first edition of ‘The Power of Practice Nursing’ podcast, looking at the modern role of GPNs and how managing Covid-19 has created a dynamic, effective and hi-tech solutions.
