  • Comment on: Exclusive: Warning surgical nurses exit NHS due to under use

    Adrian Jones's comment 5 June, 2019 8:02 pm

    Fantastic article, but confused by the titles used in this piece? Non-medical surgical assistant recognised titles are currently: Surgical First Assistant - single degree academic module qualification.
    Surgical Care Practitioner - Masters degree undertaken at a Royal College of Surgeons accredited University. Both draw candidates from theatre nurses or Operating department practitioners across the U.K. Providing continuity of patient care within Perioperative surgical care team led by consultant surgeons.

    PDF is not downloading, which is helpful.

    Excellent article - Well Done!

  • Comment on: 'When will the value of specialist nurses be recognised by those who control NHS purse strings?'

    Adrian Jones's comment 15 February, 2019 12:32 pm

    I may be old, but bold enough to still believe in my vocation as a nurse! However the past year in my advanced Perioperative roles as an Orthopaedic Surgical Care Practitioner has become stressful as my failing trust seeks to reduce overtime payments! I will not leave my patients and surgical care team without a dedicated assistant, which would mean operation being cancelled. Hundreds of hours of my life owed.

    What's your situation like?

    Which spokes of the wheel are falling of this week or just how many are left on the nursing manpower bicycle?

    Congratulations on developing this patient centred service. Nurses lead the way in new medical associate professions, whilst highlighting nursing care as our primary aim!
