6Cs Live! offers support and encouragement to health and social care staff committed to improve the quality of their service and the experience of their patients and celebrates their success.
6Cs Live! supports the delivery of the six areas of action defined by the Compassion in Practice strategy and vision based on the 6Cs – care, compassion, competence, communication, courage and commitment - which was launched by the Chief Nursing Officer of England in December 2012
"I believe that, by harnessing our collective energy and commitment, we, as the largest part of one of the largest workforces in the World, have unlimited potential to massively improve the quality of care. It is all our responsibility to ensure that essential nursing care is a given and can be counted on every time, in every healthcare setting – and 6Cs Live! is here to help and support you" Jane Cummings, Chief Nursing Officer of England
'High quality care for all, now and for future generations'
