    When I worked in London some years ago Brighton Hospital was viewed as one of the best hospitals for patient outcomes outside London. It is a shame to see the demise of this hospital as a result of apparent disconnection between management and the workforce. The whole Board should stand down and make room for people who care about what they do and want to provide care of a standard all patients deserve

  • Comment on: MP tells committee she was 'swamped with pleas on NHS care'

    You've heard the term in midwifery 'too posh to push', when referring to elective caesareans. Well some in nursing are too posh to undertake the more unpleasant tasks such as changing soiled sheets and bedding. They DO NOT CARE about the consequences such as pressure sores or discomfort for the patient. A degree is one thing but we must not ignore the duty of care to the patient. To me as a nurse it is a matter of pride that my patients are clean and comfortable, have a drink near to hand and are assisted to wash and eat when needed. Nurse training needs to change in order to instil the nature of caring as well as the theory. What is the point of the theory if thousands of nurses are unable or unwilling to apply it? Wake UP please before nursing goes back into the dark ages and the good nurses leave the profession for lack of support.

    If you commit the crime, you should be accountable !! It is always a bad idea to put people in charge of trusts whose only interest is the pounds sterling and not the patient.

  • Comment on: NMC 'unaware of scale' of fraudulent healthcare worker problem

    Carol Cleeton's comment 11 March, 2013 10:36 pm

    I live and work in Australia and when I came overseas I was asked to provide notarised copies of all my nursing credentials from the UK, plus a transcript of training from the nursing school where I trained. If the NMC are not following similar lines then they deserve the criticism they are getting. It is no good putting such evidence gathering in the 'too hard' basket!! It is patient's lived we are dealing with here.
