  • Comment on: Brexit will hit ‘squeezed and ageing nurse workforce’

    Celle's comment 7 July, 2016 5:32 pm

    I wish all this Brexit scaremongering would stop! There is no reason whatsoever, that nurses from the EU and wider would be prevented from working here. No different to USA/Canada/Australia/Saudi Arabia etc. etc. with their recruitment campaigns here over the years. What this Government should have done is paid nurses (and doctors/allied professions) decent wages in the first place to attract them into the profession. In stead they have reduced our pensions, given us a pathetic 1% pay rise (in effect a pay cut) and underfunded the NHS to such an extent the workforce is being run into the ground trying to provide safe and effective care to patients with minimum staff. In addition, Trusts are having to make cuts in services to save money (rebranded 'reconfiguration of services'). Many nurses have been made redundant or downgraded or left the profession totally disillusioned with the NHS. This is nothing to do with Brexit but the Governments fault in running down the NHS and its staff!
