  • Comment on: Nursing bodies condemn prank call

    Plinky's comment 10 December, 2012 12:04 pm

    A newspaper or broadcaster has done this before, its a ploy they use which is why confidentiality is so important. On the occasion that i recall the outcome was not tragic but the confidentiality processes increased. It is really sad about Jacintha, my thoughts go out to her family. It is a tragedy that should never has happened and i hope something suitably disciplinary happened to the 2day FM presenters occurred. How selfish, and irresponsible has 2day FM been?

  • Comment on: National nursing strategy set for launch

    Plinky's comment 4 December, 2012 12:02 pm

    Why are we having this conversation? The powers that be have been trying to educate nursing staff for the last 30 years and failed because we already do it! again, we are being penalised for the minority. Its high time they educate the public and support the staff when the public are aggressive to us, abuse us, sexually harrass us, attend ED inappropriately, and threaten us with emotional blackmail. Sort that out and i'll be impressed. in the meantime, been there, done that, bored now.

  • Comment on: NMC fee rise could face legal challenge

    They've got the biggest register of nurses on the planet, with no doubt, the highest fees. what have they spent it on? A moat, maybe? No, maybe that should say 'float', because by the time this has finished they will need one to go away. Let's go back to the was simpler then. Move the NMC up north where its cheaper and the staff there dont have the temptations of London shopping.

  • Comment on: NMC fee to rise to £100 in February

    They boast in their literature that they have the biggest nursing register of nurses on the planet. That equates with more money from registrants than anywhere else in the world doesnt it? I think a vote of no confidence in the NMC incompetent financiers as mentioned above is a really good idea, then take the NMC out of London and move it North where it's cheaper! I think these days, scrounging off the state is a viable option, I'm thinking about that myself.
