Patricia Spencer, Senior Nurse working within NHSGGC Mental Health Services.
I have been involved with the Committee for nearly 4 years to represent Mental Health Nursing. The most inspiring aspects of having this Committee as a nurse is the wealth and diversity of nursing & midwifery experience that collectively commits each of us to the profession and our patients' care. This includes the complete understanding and recognition of the value and privileged position we have in belonging to our profession to care for patients and their families - often at their most vulnerable. The Committee gives nurses the opportunity to escalate this and space to consider those issues that are critical to nurses and to mobilise our support.
