Leadership in Compassionate Care: Executive Summary- Enhancing patient care by promoting compassionate practice.

  The Leadership in Compassionate Care
Programme (LCCP) commenced in 2007 as a
three year programme of work. Initial funding
was received from a private benefactor
and the two organisations involved in the
programme (NHS Lothian and Edinburgh
Napier University) were required to match
this funding. The work of the programme
developed beyond the initial funding. A
Lead Nurse and four Senior Nurses were
appointed to deliver the programme and a
wide range of staff from both organisations
were actively involved and participated with
this team. The impetus for this programme
arose from local and National concerns
about care focussed on patients and their
relatives experiencing a lack of empathy
and compassion, acknowledging that it is
often small acts of kindness and a human
connection, alongside clinical competence
that is appreciated by patients and relatives
