Care Makers Hub (NHS Employers / NHS England)


The Care Makers Programme was launched in December 2012 to support the “Compassion in Practice” nursing, midwifery and care staff strategy. It is led by NHS Employers and NHS England. The online hub provides care makers with tools and resources, and a shared online discussion space.

“Care Makers are student nurses and newly qualified staff who act as ambassadors for the 6Cs and are selected for demonstrating a commitment to increasing the spread of Compassion in Practice across NHS commissioned services. The new online hub will provide Care Makers with tools and resources to support them in promoting the 6Cs and the role of the Care Maker, as well as offering an online space to share their stories and experiences”.
