Dignity and compassion in care - the 6 C's


As part of the wider health community, we have signed up to a 3 year vision and strategy called Compassion in Practice. Compassion in Practice is based around six values we feel really strongly about - care, compassion, courage, communication, competence and commitment. We know that to improve patient experience and deliver the highest quality of care we all need get involved and take action at all levels.     

We are working hard to build on a culture of compassionate care and embed these values, known as the Six C’s, in the work of nursing and care staff.  

Our work on the Six C's is structured around six areas of action where collectively and collaboratively we have the opportunity to make a real difference for patients and the people we care for.
