Membership Reflections - April to June 2023

Adam Rabinowitz, FNF Membership Development Manager

Welcome to the first of a series of quarterly updates all around our wonderful FNF Academy Membership. Wow! What an incredible few months it’s been!

We started the quarter rolling out our new and updated membership benefits to all our new and existing members. Talking of new members, we welcomed a whopping 18 organisations since 1 April and one ICS (Integrated care System), made up of a further 15 trusts!

One of the new benefits has been access to our online learning development modules on our members portal. Currently we have modules for ‘Co-Consulting’ and ‘Innovation and Entrepreneurship’. We will continue to add one every quarter.      

Uptake for these free to member modules have already been very encouraging.

Access to our live online webinars and recordings have also had a huge uptake. We ran six live webinars on a variety of fascinating subjects, including, The Kings Fund findings on Digital Inclusion, Neurodiversity and ‘Who Cares for our Nurses’. Over 1000 nurses and midwifes registered for these webinars alone.  

All information about all our benefits, including links to previous webinars and our new upcoming wonderful Mentoring platform, FNF Connect, can be found here.  

Finally, we held some incredible events, most notably the 58th Florence Nightingale Commemoration service was held at St Pauls on May 16th. This annual event holds over 2,000 people and celebrates all the hard work of all our nurses and midwives including over 200 invited FNF Academy Members.   

We look forward to another incredible few months including our special exclusive members Symposium Event, this year at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens on 5 September. More details to follow!
