  • Comment on: Nursing Times’ Jenni Middleton named ‘editor of year’

    Joan Myers's comment 10 July, 2015 7:22 pm

    I knew Jenni was a shining star and now she has been crowned "Editor of the Year" to prove it. By saying "the Year" I think they mean last year, this year, next year and every year! Jenni is the best! Congratulations and well done, definitely well deserved. With that crown the Queen will be recognising next.

  • Comment on: Filipino nurses protest outside national newspaper office

    News headlines rarely declare great news and this has certainly held true for the behaviour of some elements of the press when providing wider commentary on the Victorino Chua case.
    I am horrified at his actions and deeply saddened by the impact that his heinous crimes have had on patients. The news headlines of one particular paper appears rapacious in its desire to label all Filipino nurses with the same brush as Victorino Chua.
    My personal experience strongly suggests that he was the exception and not the rule. Like the overwhelming majority of all nurses, hard work, compassion, dedication and skill and the absolute desire to serve our patients and communities to the very best of our abilities are what typically characterises Filipino nurses. I would like to commend all the diligent, dedicated and committed nurses from the Philippines and other shores working on the frontline in the NHS and other healthcare areas, without which this country would not be able to maintain the workforce.
    It is unfair, unreasonable and discriminatory to stigmatise and vilify all Filipino nurses on the basis of the heinous crime committed by one nurse from the Philippines who it was alleged may not be a qualified nurse. All Filipino nurses cannot be labelled and used as a scapegoat as a result of one person's actions.

    It's really good news that Edith Cavell a courageous, caring nurse is recognised and honoured in this way. This will maintain her legacy as one of the many nurses like Mary Seacole that looked after army casualties in the time of war.
