None of the reasons I would cite would be for bullying. Unacceptable that staff feel like this.
I would say something like this.
Big university hospitals take the "glamorous stuff"(and I used this word to represent funding, growth, training and opportunities). Smaller hospitals struggle with less of the above. Very valued by their local communities, but under resourced and undervalued by strategic bodies. These trusts then battle to make cost savings meaning fewer and fewer opportunities and "perks" (including facilities) for staff.
Personally I am in it for the long haul, I have rolled my sleeves up, girded my loins and am ready. I will do my upmost to help train staff, make them feel valued and hopefully retain staff and make our hospital great again!!!! (Bit Trumpesque, but you get my point).
It is about time that someone recognises NHS staff feel low........However, do one Branson we don't want you just yet.
Start paying nurses what they deserve. Stop freezing pay. Learn a lesson from agencies......pay staff within days of completing an extra shift, do it at overtime rates and do it soon.
Comment on: RCN to pilot accreditation standards for ANPs
Fully support this.
Have a Bsc Hons Nurse Practitioner with Independent prescribing. This maps closely to the RCN's competence for advanced practice. My practice is specialised and I would challenge any post grad student nurse to work to the level I currently do. Which includes complete undifferentiated diagnosis consultations, management plans and discharge.
I would concede though that a Masters should be standard.
Comment on: NHS nurses face crackdown on accepting gifts
Oh aye! Regularly get gifts to the value of £50. Pen and a butty from reps.
Comment on: Nurse training threat from loss of trust funding
Already happening........no staff training except the bare essentials ie corporate manatory training (fire, moving and handling, infection control and basic life support). If you don't offer training, people will find somewhere that does.
