  • Comment on: Parliament clashes over Hunt's decision to hold-down NHS pay

    tinkerbell's comment 6-Apr-2014 11:33 am

    government should be made up of lay people, we each get a 2 year term, similar to national conscription, so that we do not have enough time to get involved in any treachery. Just like the greeks used to do.

    it's alright to defraud the public, david Cameron says so, they're mostly all still fiddling their expenses and somehow denying it's fraud. You or I would be taken to court and have a criminal conviction, double standards and a total contempt for justice.

  • Comment on: Kylie to take on NHS ambassador role *

    tinkerbell's comment 3-Apr-2014 8:07 am

    If it were an April fool wouldn't I have to be done with Kylie's consent? Or can you just take any old bod and use there name in an article? If it is an April fool then I am not amused. And why is there an * under the articles title?

  • Comment on: Bullying in nursing and ways of dealing with it

    tinkerbell's comment 2-Apr-2014 7:32 pm

    Bullies appear to have a radar, they can spot their victim a mile off, usually someone they perceive as sensitive or are jealous of. It can be overt or covert. I have seen it through all grades of staff from HCW, cleaners, admin, staff nurses and senior managers. I don't want to analyse why the bully is a bully whilst I am at work trying to look after my patients, otherwise the bully then becomes part of my caseload also. But I can say that having been bullied on occasions as a child and also in the workplace I am now a lot tougher and would never allow myself to be bullied again, unless I am willing to go along with it because if feel too sorry for the pathetic bully because I could just as equally make their life unpleasant and miserable and I don't want to do that and become what I hate, but I would intervene on anothers behalf if they didn't yet have the grit to stand up for themselves against a bully. I think a bully might look at me now and instead of seeing me as a prospective victim would think twice.

  • Comment on: How can we show our appreciation of student nurses?

    tinkerbell's comment 2-Apr-2014 4:04 pm

    Perhaps we could all donate some money to Rachael Starkey Student Nursing Times’ child branch student editor so she doesn't have to keep selling her clothes on ebay to continue her studies. Perhaps we could create a food bank for student nurses so they can afford to get to their placements or pay their parking fees but don't have enough money to buy themselves any decent food. Perhaps the awards could organise a night out for the 'other' students so that it's not all work and no play that makes Jack a dull boy, for those who can't afford to attend. Sure there are plenty more suggestions we could come up with.
