Closes 15 Dec 2020

Opened 17 Nov 2020


On behalf of the Chief Nursing Officer in Northern Ireland (NI), the Northern Ireland Practice & Education Council for Nursing & Midwifery (NIPEC) in partnership with the Public Health Agency, HSC Trusts, Education Providers and RCN is undertaking a project to promote nursing careers in hospital operating theatres and recovery rooms, also known as perioperative nursing careers.


Why We Are Consulting

We would like to hear personal stories from people who have undergone surgical procedures, as an inpatient or as a day procedure, about the important role the nurses played in your care in the anaesthetic room, theatre or recovery area.

We want to capture the qualities that you feel are important and which practitioners working in this important area of nursing practice should have. 

Thank you for participating in this survey.
