If you’re struggling to remember the six Cs of compassionate care then fear no more – there is now an allegedly catchy song to assist.

Accompanied by plink plonk piano and stirring guitar strings, student nurse and Caremaker general Samuel McPhail has woven the six Cs (care, compassion, commitment, courage, communication and competence, lest you forget) into the chorus of his imaginatively titled tune: ‘The 6 Cs’.

Endgame applauds Mr McPhail for his musical efforts and the fact the song, available on iTunes, will raise money for charity.

The near-religious fervour which now surrounds the six Cs can only be enhanced by a rousing song.

We fully expect to see chief nurse Jane Cummings leading her disciples in an ear-bleeding rendition at the forthcoming NHS Confederation Conference.
