The Covid-19 pandemic is placing significant pressures on health and care services and the workforce, including nurses working in primary and community care.

As the situation develops, so will the pressure points in delivering essential services to people in the community and at home.

The QNI was commissioned by NHS England and Improvement to develop Minimum Bridging Competencies for General Practice Nurses (GPN) making the transition into community nursing, as a quick response to the current changing and challenging times in community and primary care.

These Competencies have been drawn up by Queen’s Nurse Sharon Aldridge-Bent.
