Simon Cassidy to take up a post of 'Programme Manager Education' in NHS Wales Shared Services Partnership

After many years working within ABMU Health Board in clinical practice and more recently in a practice education role aligned with Swansea University, Simon Cassidy is to take up a post of 'Programme Manager Education' in NHS Wales Shared Services Partnership.

In close collaboration with all Universities and Health Boards in Wales, the project manager will oversee the timely implementation of the new UK Nursing and Midwifery Council Education Framework. The role will concentrate in the first instance  on ensuring future pre-registration nursing students have the appropriate support and learning opportunities necessary to achieve the new NMC proficiencies at the point of registration. This All Wales collaborative work will include critical timeframes in the lead up to the series of nursing and midwifery programme validation dates commencing in January 2020.

Simon said: “This is such an exciting time to be involved in what is significant change to nursing, midwifery and other health care programmes across Wales. I am so pleased to be a part of ensuring the infrastructure is in place so that future nurses and midwives are prepared to meet the anticipated changes in health care needs of the population. I will miss the day to day relationships with Health Board and University colleagues but I know these long established and valued contacts will endure.”
