Comment on: Four arm's length bodies being abolished
no matter what Conning Dems say this is privatisation of the NHS by any other word .. they bang on about it being patient centred and patient led but where was the consultation with real patients and their carers ..
NPSA for all its faults should have been given better regulatory powers .. not abolished ..
Comment on: Fresh guidance on 'bare below the elbow'
this should not be about religion culture or creed but purely about prioritising patient safety .. infection prevention/control is just that prioritising the need for safety and lessening the risk of contraction and contamination. if the sensitivities of culture are being breached then the safest way to deal with this would be to go into a vocation that does not require such priorities and a vocation that can cater for culture sensitivities. The only priority here should be the paramount importance of adhering the infection prevention/control hygiene protocols, which by the way are mandatory in the hygiene code .. if we were to apply for a job in any other country we would rightly be expected to adhere to the policies and regulations of that country or otherwise forego the opportunity of salaried work in that country
anyone coming into the healthcare profession in this country knows full well what is required and should be prepared to put patients before anything else
