  • Comment on: Brexit may hit NHS nurse 'pipeline', says NMC chief

    Delorus's comment 5 July, 2016 4:55 pm

    Student nurses cant afford to train in the UK, unlike other students with long holidays where they can get a paid job, student nurses are working/studying throughout the year.This combined with the slashing of the NHS budget leaves nurses unsure if they will have a job.
    Employers & trusts then start shipping nurses in, often from the most deprived countries leaving the patients in these countries without their precious medical workforce. Lesotho is one such country after care home owners started shipping planeloads into the UK complete with NMC PINs
    UK must start and train its own nurses, to begin with by ensuring a good bursary for the students or at least pay them for the time they work on the wards

  • Comment on: Morecambe Bay midwife sacked after recent baby death

    Delorus's comment 23 June, 2016 3:56 pm

    There is no justice with the NMC they fond anyone referred 'guilty' regardless of any mitigating circumstances.
    I got justice by appealing to the High Court who quashed the NMC decision with costs
    The term "NMC shit" is so right
    Referred cases should be heard by the LAW courts so that they are processed by independent people without anyone who has 'vested interests' involved.
