star this property answer text <p>Capital Nurse is a National Health Service programme with over 90 projects working to support recruitment and retention of nurses in London<em>. </em>The Capital Nurse vision and objective is to ‘get nursing right for London’, so that London has the right number of nurses, with the right skills in the right place, working to deliver excellent nursing wherever it is needed. The programme is jointly sponsored by Health Education England, NHS England and NHS Improvement.</p><p>NHS Improvement and NHS Employers have been working in partnership to deliver a national programme of action to support NHS trusts to improve retention of the nursing and clinical workforce. This provides targeted support to trusts on key issues affecting retention, such as flexible working, supporting new starters and older workers, and development and career planning. Trusts’ commitment has enabled a national improvement in nursing turnover rates from 12.5% to 11.9% since the beginning of the programme (June 2017).</p><p>Around 1 million NHS workers are already benefiting from the Agenda for Change (3 year) pay and contract reform deal agreed last year. The deal includes important changes to pay and non-pay benefits to help support recruitment and retention of all staff, including nurses, and boost productivity in return for additional pay investment.</p>

star this property answer text <p>There is significant work underway to improve waiting times both throughout London and nationally.</p><p> </p><p>Locally, at Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust and wider South East London Sustainability and Transformation Partnership for example, there are several plans in place to improve accident and emergency (A&amp;E) and elective care waiting times.</p><p> </p><p>In relation to A&amp;E, a new clinical facility at Queen Elizabeth Hospital has increased bed capacity by 44 beds; the SAFER and Red2Green programme is working to improve discharges processes so that more patients are not only discharged on time but are also admitted more quickly; and there has been an increase in the number of clinical staff in the Urgent Care Centre to meet the unexpected increase in number of patients from the beginning of March.</p><p> </p><p>For elective care, a theatre productivity programme is in place to increase the number of patients who undergo an operation at the Trust during 2019/20, and an outpatient transformation programme is increasing the efficiency of the outpatients’ department, reducing the waiting times for patients who require an outpatients’ appointment. For cancer, the Trust is working with the south-east London cancer network to improve cancer pathways so that waiting times are reduced. The Trust has also secured additional endoscopy capacity to ensure additional patients can undergo diagnosis tests at weekends.</p><p> </p><p>Reducing elective care waiting times continues to be a high priority for the NHS. The NHS Long Term Plan sets out the NHS priorities going forward and reiterates the focus to increase the amount of planned surgery year-on-year, to cut long waits, and reduce the size of hospital waiting lists.</p><p> </p><p>The Clinical Standards Review is all part of delivering the clear commitments set out in the NHS Long Term Plan to improve urgent and emergency care performance and reduce provider waiting lists over the next five years, as well as delivering the new ambitions set out, all within the final long-term funding settlement. The clinically-led review of standards is considering the appropriateness of operational standards for physical and mental health relating to planned, unplanned urgent or emergency care, as well as cancer.</p>
