New Professional Guidance to Support General Practice Nurses in the Covid-19 Pandemic Published

The Queen’s Nursing Institute has published a new document, Minimum Bridging Competencies for General Practice Nurses Transitioning to Community Nursing.

The Queen’s Nursing Institute has published a new document, Minimum Bridging Competencies for General Practice Nurses Transitioning to Community Nursing.

The Competencies will support nurses who are taking up new roles at short notice during the Covid-19 pandemic. The development of the new document has been funded by NHS England and Improvement.

The resource can be downloaded from the QNI’s website at: https://www.qni.org.uk/resources/minimum-bridging-competencies-for-general-practice-nurses-transitioning-to-community-nursing/

"I am delighted to see this work to provide nurses across our primary and community services with the bridging competencies they need to support our most vulnerable patients in community settings. I would like to say a special thanks for their work in this to colleagues Karen Storey, Primary Care Nursing Lead and Dr Bola Owolabi, National Specialty Adviser Older People and Integrated Person Centred Care."

Ruth May, Chief Nursing Officer for England

"I am very glad that together with colleagues in NHSE/I and Health Education England, the QNI is helping nurses to work collaboratively during the Covid-19 pandemic. The vital work of community nurses may be less visible in the media than that of their hospital colleagues, but they are nonetheless playing a critical role. By supporting residents in their own communities 24/7, including some of the most vulnerable people in society, community nurses are vital to the whole system approach to protecting all our health at this critical time."

Dr Crystal Oldman CBE, QNI Chief Executive
