Lesley Bainbridge

Lead Nurse to the Care home Programme
NHS Newcastle Gateshead Clinical Commissioning Group
Lesley trained as a nurse and midwife in Gateshead in an apprentice style training that she loved. She says she laughed through all the student years while making lifelong friends and importantly being privileged to work alongside, and learn from, clinicians she still regards to be among the best in the business.
Since then she has complimented her training with graduations from Northumbria University. Professionally there are two things that get Lesley out of bed every morning and they are nursing in its fullest sense and the care of older people, especially those with complex needs living with frailty. She is very much looking forward therefore to progressing all of the components of the Enhanced Health in Care Homes programme so as to make a positive contribution towards improving not only the lives of older people and their families; but the working lives of the staff providing the services also.

Director of People Development
HC-One (care home provider)
Alison is Director of People Development and Engagement at HC-One, a value driven company based on kindness. Alison scoped and developed the programme which has become a force of change in Social care over the past two years.

HC-One’s vision and overriding goal is to make a real difference by delivering the kindest health and care services in the UK. To make our vision reality we have to be flexible, responsive and innovative, always with quality at the centre of everything we do.

One of the biggest challenges we share is the national shortage of Nurses. HC-One struggles, with other providers to fill full time nurse vacancies across the UK and on a weekly basis employ several thousand hours from agency suppliers.
Clearly this does not provide us with the quality of continuity from our current staff teams to deliver our vision.

Having reviewed all options, our proposal was to offer development to our Senior Care Staff to fulfil the role of “Nursing Assistant”. HC-One has a multi-award winning Learning & Development platform on which all training is delivered and assessed for this new role and is a Skills for Care Centre of Excellence, so felt well equipped to embark on this initiative.

SCIE has independently evaluated the programme over 8 months and the journey, results, recommendations and outcomes will be discussed during this session.
