does this lady get any form of recompense? innocent until proven guilty...where was that?! typical knee jerk reaction to 'protect the public'. shocking and unfortunately not uncommon. when will people sit up and take notice? how many nurses will have to go through this dreadful ordeal? and how many more will leave the profession which they chose because they wanted to care but then find they aren't being cared about/for?
i fear the instalments will not be 'monthly' as the NMC have already stated that they would not be able to police continual payments.more like quarterly payments. as regards comments posted about venues and cost etc. have the NMC not heard of skype? the NMC are continuing to fail and it is us nurses who are paying the price.it is a foregone conclusion tht the fee will rise. the question is when will it stop?
The NMC were given £20 million to clear the backlog(or 'historical' cases as they prefer to call them!) which they have failed to do.they state they are to protect the public first and foremost.we, as nurses, are the public too.nurses are being slated left,right and centre by bad press,no wage rise,pension cuts,no increments but we still strive to do our job to the best of our ability.pity the NMC aren't doing theirs! the government need to investigate them for their continued failings.if i was failing in my job i would quickly find myself in front of the NMC on my fitness to practice!
i do have my own mug at work which i do not want to share with other staff,just as a matter of preference.this is a result of working in a prison and sharing cups with the prisoners,some of whom were not in the best of hygiene and i seemed to develop a lot of cold sores then?! ? a link,i don't know.i do use our residents' cutlery and crockery for my break times.they have been through the dishwasher.
