    I know nurses are amazing and totally brilliant

  • Comment on: Exclusive: '6Cs' nursing values to be rolled out to all NHS staff

    PDave Angel's comment 31 January, 2016 2:24 pm

    The 6cs are very important as
    1 This gives the Chief Nursing Officer something to do all day
    2 Gives press briefings to remind the public - and the Nurses - she really exists
    and the most important reason is:
    It distracts us to the facts that Jane Cummings has no power at all
    Can she give nurses more money?
    Can she fine hospitals and trusts when something goes wrong?
    Can she defend nurses when they are attacked and vilified in the press?

    I cannot resist this:
    "The 6cs will be rolled out across the country. The 6cs will finally give nurses what they need to look after patients - six more words to their vocabulary! Hurrah!
    The fact that nurses have actually been able to look after patients for hundreds of years without these has been quietly forgotten and those who remember will be forced to watch Angels or Call The Midwife for at least 1 year without rest.
    Only after every single nurse in every single ward in every single hospital in every single trust has these stuck onto their them then we will move onto another publicity stunt"

    These Cs will be rolled out on wheels hospital after hospital until all the nurses mention these in their sleep or start running away from the PowerPoint slides after seeing these for the 100000th time.

    Who thinks Jane Cummings has any real power in the government?

    She may be reading these pages and may know what everybody thinks of her and may care about nursing. However, she may not have any power to do anything.

    Can she affect Trust Fund budgets?
    Can she force Trusts to employ more Nurses?
    Can she affect the mix of skills on wards?
    Can she act on behalf on Nurses in any disputes?
    Can she affect pay?
    Can she help whistleblowers?

    I think her main role is a nurses' lightening rod, someone nurses can blame to stop them attacking the government and going on marches outright.

    See how easy it is to blame?
    I know someone who cannot eat in front of other people. I always think all this are the symptoms of other hidden problems. Could be self-worth or lack of confidence.

    I cannot understand why we should judge all these people, after all it may be you there
