    Thank you Anita, the link does work and it is indeed a sobering tale!

    A really interesting, useful and timely article. I hope the programme used can be extended further afield as it sounds very effective.

    Wow, what brilliant news if the trials are are successful. A revolution in the fight against bacteria and the overuse of antibiotics. Well done to this team.

  • Comment on: Hunt appeals to nurses to save NHS money by reducing errors

    Thank you 17/10 3.50, you have hit the nail right on the head. I am (almost) speechless with rage! How dare he say this “And I want every nurse in the country to understand that if we work together to make the NHS the safest healthcare organisation in the world, we could potentially release resources for additional nurses, additional training, and additional time to care… nobody should be in any doubt that the path to lower cost is the same as the path to safer care.” So, you, yes you, the nurses that cause your patients to suffer needlessly, you could be doing a better job. And if you did we could employ and train more nurses and that would make everything better. Basically, it's nurses fault there aren't enough nurses. You could not make it up. Jeremy Hunt, you should be ashamed!

  • Comment on: What was life like for a student nurse in the 1940s?

    Fascinating, thanks for sharing this story. A GP friend of mine was a nurse (before becoming a doctor) in the 40's and she is always shocked that nurses these days have such short breaks and are not fed by the hospital. Shifts then were long too but you had several hours break and were, she said, "looked after" by the hospital. She is not impressed with the system now! Any thoughts David Cameron?
