General Nursing Council for Scotland (Education) Fund 1983 and Margaret Callum Rodger Midwifery Award

The General Nursing Council and Margaret Callum Rodger Awards are used by registered nurses and midwives to undertake educational developments, study tours or carry out small scale projects, all of which must make a difference to patient or client care.

During the 2019-2020 funding round the General Nursing Council and Margaret Callum Rodger Midwifery Awards provided a charitable contribution to NES Knowledge Network enabling nursing and midwifery practitioners access to eBooks that would support them in the delivery of patient care.

The NES Knowledge Network can be accessed at
