Are you buying your manager a Christmas present this year?

  • Comments (36)

Dean Royles the director of the NHS Employers recently suggested,  “Hardly anyone supports and encourages NHS managers, or shows any recognition or appreciation of the context they work in or the difficult, sometimes intractable challenges they face”.

Do you think this comment is justified?

    why are there two threads about this subject? it is irrelevant to most nurses who can barely afford to buy presents for their families and real friends.

    But the fire is so delightful,
    And since we've no place to go,
    Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!"

    Sammy Cahn and Jule Styne, 1945


    wouldn't it be nice just to curl up with a good book instead such as 'The Snow Child' and forget everything else outside.

    It seems to be a very individual decision depending on circumstances and interpersonal/professional relationships with the managers.

  • In the states we have "Bosses' Day," so that should cover honoring anyone you feel is worth recognition for the job they do. If you feel they put anyone else but the patient above you, then I think your answer is 'no.'

    It's the fault of the managers that I was unfairly downbanded, so NO!
