UK Lead, Tommy Whitelaw returns to King's College London to speak to nursing students and present the Leading Change Adding Value framework
The team would like to thank Henrieta Mulnier, Senior Lecturer for the invitation to visit King’s College London to meet and speak with 2nd year Nursing Students and for looking after us so well.
Tommy was proud to speak to 2nd year Nursing Students a year ago this week.
Tommy was joined by Susan Aitkenhead, Director of Nursing Professional Development at NHS England and Kate Lievesley, Project Delivery Manager on the Framework for Nursing Midwifery and Care Staff.
Susan gave a brilliant talk on using the framework (This link will take you away from our website) to help turn pledges into purposeful actions, supporting and inspiring our future nurses and leaders.
A massive thank you to Henrieta, Susan, Kate and the truly inspirational 2nd year Nurses. We look forward to returning very soon, in the meantime read the wonderful pledges made on the day.
Thank you from all the team at DCV
