Our support workers will provide physical care, create safe and environments for their clients, liaise with family members and loved once amongst other tasks. They will also ensure they are assessing each resident’s needs and progress and keeping records for review by supervisors.
Revalidation is the process where registered nurses and midwives are required every three years to demonstrate to the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) they remain fit to practice. Revalidation promotes greater professionalism among nurses and midwives and also improves the quality of care that patients receive by encouraging reflection on nurses’ and midwives’ practice against the revised NMC Code.
The importance of the revalidation is to:
Raise awareness of the Code and professional standards expected of nurses and midwives;
Provide you with the opportunity to reflect on the role of the Code in your practice as a nurse or midwife and demonstrate that you are “living” these standards;
Encourage you to stay up to date in your professional practice by developing new skills and understanding the changing needs of the public and fellow healthcare professionals;
Encourage a culture of sharing, reflection and improvement;
Encourage you to engage in professional networks and discussions about your practice;
Strengthen public confidence in the nursing and midwifery professions.
We provide a professional and reliable service, working in partnership with all our clients to ensure we and our workers exceed their expectations. We also offer managed healthcare staffing solutions providing bespoke services, tailored exactly to the needs of each client.
Our professional Healthcare Assistants are regularly trained to ensure that they are serving our clients with excellence and ensuring the patient experience is comfortable and stress free.
