Posted on 21st November 2023 by

NAHH would like to welcome you to the new ‘Learning Network’. This will replace the current ‘Coffee & Chat’ in order to reflect a learning and networking approach.

It is an opportunity to learn, revisit and reflect on current topics and themes with like minded health care professionals. By sharing current practice and past experiences we aim to ensure patients and carers are given the best possible support.

The next Learning Network is:

13 December 2023

Coping with Loss and Grief by Sue Eskins, our very own NAHH Vice Chair and Trustee.

NEW publication from the British Liver Trust

Posted on 22nd March 2019 by

British Liver Trust have a new publication called Thinking ahead: Planning for your future when you have advanced liver disease.

The aim of the publication, which was produced in collaboration with the UK’s leading experts in supportive and palliative care, is to raise awareness of the support services available to those living with advanced liver disease, and advise on how to access them.   There is a perception that palliative care particularly is available only in the last weeks or days of life, while in fact it may be accessed at any stage of a life-limiting illness to help with symptom management and / or the planning of future care.

The publication would be of interest to those living with advanced liver disease or caring for someone with advanced liver disease – click here for more information.

Health Education England – Green light for new nursing support role

Posted on 3rd June 2016 by

A new role that will sit alongside existing nursing care support workers and fully-qualified registered nurses to deliver hands-on care moved a step closer today as Health Education England (HEE) published the response to its recent consultation on the Nursing Associate role.


The consultation attracted more than 1,000 responses from individuals including patients, members of the public and a wide range of organisations including professional bodies, trade unions, health care and social care providers and commissioners of healthcare. The role will be given the title Nursing Associate. In order to get the implementation of the Nursing Associate role right, HEE intends to appoint ‘test sites’. Five workshops will take place in England in July so that HEE can engage with stakeholders on the scope of practice of the new role. Early test sites will recruit 1,000 students to start training for the new role in 2017.


To view the response to the consultation, visit

Join Lisa Bayliss-Pratt, HEE’s Nursing Director, for a Twitter chat on the @WeNurses platform on Tuesday 7 June (8-9pm) to debate areas of the consultation and ask questions.
