An event to launch the aims and priorities of the nursing, midwifery and allied health professions (NMAHP) workforce was recently held at Ninewells Hospital.
NHS Tayside’s Interim Chair Lorna Birse-Stewart opened the event in the Gannochy Trust Lecture Theatre to highlight the NMHAP contribution to Transforming Tayside.
Over the last year NMAHPs have been developing their aims and priorities to contribute to the ambitious Transforming Tayside agenda.
More than 120 people, including nurses, midwives, allied health professionals (AHPs), Board members, public partners, students and healthcare support workers across NHS Tayside, came along to the event to hear about this work, how it is progressing and how to become involved.
Interim Nurse Director Sarah Dickie said, “As Interim Nurse Director I am excited about our NMAHP contribution to Transforming Tayside, and I want all NMAHPs to connect with this, and be enthused too.
“I am committed to supporting and enabling NMAHPs to deliver on our 18 priorities and to be proud of our NMAHP contribution, and I look forward to celebrating the successes as we move forward.”
Director of Allied Health Professions Karen Anderson said, “We were delighted to see so many people come along to the event. People who attended have said they were inspired by their colleagues speaking about their experiences. The interactive session was useful and colleagues said they were keen to use the tools they tested going forward in their own areas.
“We are currently developing a variety of NMAHP materials, including a website and Staffnet page. In the meantime, if you would like to find out more about the NMAHP contribution work, please contact your lead nurse or AHP.”
