  • Comment on: Nursing associates no 'quick fix' for NHS workforce

    patients advcate's comment 12 July, 2016 12:50 pm

    nursing associates and you say it will takt 10 years to complete this task! well people should of thought of this in 2014 when they got rid of hundreds of higher clinical support workers (band 3) to save money for the trusts where thay could have spent money on them going to uni for twelve months one to two days a week to get to a band four these people were highly educated people with a lot of years expereance and lots of spec. I noticed in some trusts thay are trying to introduce the band 4 but it will only introduce novice blood with NO experience as this job is for people that has worked in acute environment for 10 years hands on care but the band three has gone and nhs want to throw good money after bad ??????????????

  • Comment on: Nurses split over shift patterns

    patients advcate's comment 30 July, 2012 7:36 am

    hang on the problem is all staff on 12 hours if 12 hour staff fall sick who will replace them if it is more then 48 hours you have to make do? and if you are on a shorter shift due to home circinstainces .you get the finger pointed because you will finish the shift andthey are short for the rest of the 12 hours it all boils down to money andhaving extra days off work yourself saft to have days off hopefully together? students wait until you have your own section and responsablities and have no staff nurse to back you up
