Nursing Managers have a difficult role to fulfil including providing support, motivation, coordination and resources to enable other nurses and teams to achieve collective objectives. It takes a well-qualified nursing leader to survive when these roles are coupled with challenges such as growth in the size of the organization, lack of resources, poorly defined limits of responsibility, growing expectations at a time of fiscal restraint, advances in technology and increasing pressure from management. How can nursing managers meet up the ever-increasing demand and how can YOUR company gain the edge?

Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability (RHN) in London is no ordinary charity hospital. The hospital provides specialist care for patients with an acquired brain injury, following a trauma, medical illness, stroke or cardiac arrest. Many patients in the hospital require care for every aspect of their daily lives and are unable to breathe, eat, drink or move without support. For some, the hospital will become their long-term home. Specialist nurses and healthcare assistants provide round the clock care to ensure all patients and residents receive care that is compassionate, gentle and supportive and at the same time encourages life to be lived in the best way possible. The RHN works with people who are referred from the NHS as well as those who are privately insured. We accept patients from the UK and around the world. Supporting the RHN makes a real difference to people who experience disability as a result of a brain injury.
