The three-year Leadership in Compassionate Care initiative aims to ensure patients “receive the compassionate, person-centred care they expect and deserve”.Gloag said: “Nurses have many more time pressures and responsibilities today than when I was a nurse and as a result, sometimes, the care a patient receives lacks the ‘human touch’ that is so important.“This initiative is designed to help nurses ensure that compassion is part of everything they do and that is why I am pleased to fund the project for the next three years. We hope the initiative will result in improvements that can then be rolled out across Scotland with the backing of the Scottish Executive.” Advertisementlast_img
