  • Comment on: Charity music video launched to promote 6Cs of nursing

    PDave Angel's comment 21 June, 2014 7:06 am

    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.


  • Comment on: “Blaming disadvantaged patients has no place in care”

    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

  • Comment on: Updated: Barts confirms it will shed 160 nursing posts

    PDave Angel's comment 5 November, 2013 11:06 am

    Cheer up
    In about 6-7 months time Barts will have an inspection and then the Quality Commission will say it needs more nurses so it will simply reemploy the numbers its getting rid of now.

    Wonder if PWC have been on the wards and met some nurses and patients?


  • Comment on: 'Nurses have earned their royal recognition'

    PDave Angel's comment 2 November, 2013 1:39 pm

    This was written in the 60s by someone else
    It was all about too few nurses and budget cuts!

    The fact that out of all the plays the National does annually, this was chosen means Nurses are important.

    My play called "Nursing in the 21st Century" is all about an incident seen through different Nurses' eyes. Its also about bullying and "Nurses eat their own young"
