Thank-you for visiting our UHL Nursing and Midwifery site and for some of you, perhaps considering UHL as your next career opportunity.
Here at UHL we’re pioneers in the strengths-based approach to selection and development of our nursing and midwifery colleagues. This means we recognise, appreciate and take account of what makes people a good fit to their role beyond their skills and experience. We’re all different and what makes us thrive in our jobs is different for each of us. We take that into account in who we appoint and how we support them to be the best they can be in their work. We’ve launched a career coaching programme using a unique strengths diagnostic tool called Strengthsmatch TM . It helps people to understand what would be the right career development for them. We’re also implementing strengths-based selection for nursing and midwifery leadership roles to make sure people are appointed to jobs that are right for them.
This strengths-based approach to people and their careers is evidence-based as well as intuitively the right thing to do. The result is high quality patient care as well as a happy and energised teams!
I’m very excited about the journey ahead and the difference we can make together to ensure UHL is a great place to work and to receive care. I know that we will be able to work as a great team to achieve our priorities for the coming year including:
- To reduce avoidable hospital acquired harm
- To strengthen the voice of the patient
- To make UHL the employer of choice for NMAHP’s
- To increase research opportunities and develop clinical academic career pathways across LLR
- To lead the digital health agenda
Thank you for everything you do every day to look after our patients and each other.
