In our last post we shared with you a report from our ‘Expert’ visit 2017 during which a select group of German healthcare professionals had the opportunity to tour a range of hospitals and training facilities in our home city of Bristol. These visits have become fundamental to English for Nurses’ philosophy of ‘Sharing Knowledge and Skills’. We are now delighted to be able to share a comprehensive report from two of our visitors – Heike Penner and Rita Hofheinz. The report begins with an overview of some of the challenges facing the German healthcare system, before moving on to a detailed summary of the tour itinerary and experience. The authors conclude with a discussion of the differences between the approaches adopted by the UK and Germany, as well as what lessons might be learned from the exchange. It’s fascinating reading!
