Congratulations and well done Jackie - shame the recruitment process was restricted as we need to practising what we preach and demonstrating equal opportunities.
I think Dr Berwick may have other controversial suggestions as he has been invited to suggest how we can improve patient safety and has a deep understanding of this issue
Comment on: Pressures drive staff investment at Frimley Park
This is excellent news for all as patients will benefit from getting their health needs addressed more quickly. Hospital lengths of stay should be shortnend if wards take this opportunity to work more effectively to anticipate the needs of patients working with other partners. Let's hope the impact of investing more in nursing is evaluated and the results shared widely.
Comment on: CNO to review safety of 12-hour shifts
When I was younger I loved 12 hour shifts as I had bags of energy and this fitted with my interests outside of work. Now I'm not sure I would be able to do a 12 hour shift in a physically demanding role and am not sure what element of choice there is for or staff before taking on 12 hour shifts.
On reflection I'm not sure the care I gave at the latter part of my shift was as thoughtful and intuitive as at the beginning of my shift.
Whilst you mention several worthy initiatives we need to celebrate more and publicise where we are providing excellent care, while I recognise ths does happen within organisations I think we need to be influencing colleagues in our Communication Depts and get these messages out the the public. To demonstrate how great nursing care is locally.
