Indemnity may be made compulsory for nurses


In may areas of the UK the levels of highly skilled trained nurses are at a critical level reliant on bank and agency staff to plug the gaps. The introduction of compulsory indemnity adds another barrier to recruitment and retention in a profession that already precariously hangs in the balance. Nurses do not get paid the same as Doctors and Dentists and simply wont be able to afford this, on top of annual registration and monthly union fees. It is another sad indictment that we are moving to private healthcare away from free for all NHS. The government are simply covering their backs and not thinking of the individuals struggling to cope in the recession now, let alone with another £500 plus to find annually.
