Nurses are not always perfect. But neither is the profession broken. That’s the message that came out from the chief nursing officer for England’s summit last week. (See pages 2 and 3 for news from the summit.)
If you have ever received a gift where the wrapping felt more impressive than the contents of the parcel, you may sympathise with some of the opinions expressed by nurses about the government’s full response to Francis last week.
Last week was one of the highlights of my career and I am guessing that of many nurses too. On Wednesday, we went to a lunchtime reception for Nursing Times Awards finalists at Clarence House hosted by His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales.
- 'Nurses have earned their royal recognition'
- Call to make pressure ulcer care 'sexy'
