Can someone explain? We have band 4 health care practitioners that fit this role..with a foundation degree.. Is he saying they should only be band 3!!! Not sure he's seen what's out there already
I have had clinical supervisoion for a number of years, so it's not just midwives. I am in a non clinical role, so these reflections made be difficult, but if it's anything like other Nmc documents there will be so much room for interpretation. I also have no line manager that is a nurse.. It's a physio so my supervision is important to meet this need. Need to read the full guidelines
You don't say how long you've Ben nursing, but when I trained we did have a national uniform, still some variation from area to area. Our years as a student were identified by the colour belt, but the hospital in neighbouring area used the same colour as a second year for their staff nurses. But what a simple idea, that would save the nhs a fortune, I still have my poka dot sisters uniform, not that I wear it anymore, which was the same as the DN, but my skills could not be mistaken, as an Rmn, but confused relatives when trying to explain we couldn't continue the dressings once discharged! Different team, different employers!
Why? We have the NHS constitution with NHS values... This is just causing confusion and wasting people's time. The NHS constitution was put in place, then we put something in for nurses, now rolling that to everyone when we have already done that
Comment on: Government rejects 1% NHS pay rise in England
"You have to weigh up job security (and tightening your belt) versus no job or having to work in the private sector with no paid sickness and reduced holidays. This isn't my own opinion, just throwing it into the mix. "
Yes but the cost of living has gone up in the time we have had no payrise--electric, gas petrol food- i have tightened my belt but it can only go so far.
and as for the comment about pensions- its not consolidated so not added onto the payscale- which means pensions and overtime etc will be paid at the current rate not take in this increase-- including the fact that they have increased our contributions sp that even more we are out of pocket-
