News that financial support for student nurses is back on the agenda will be welcomed by many across the profession. But agenda items don’t necessarily translate into action.

Nurses at risk from job cuts 'bloodbath'
Yesterday I was reading the NT about nurses possibly being asked to take on some of the jobs of junior doctors who are about to embark on a 48hour week. Obviously this will reduce the amount of time nurses have to fulfil their role. I was thinking of responding to the thoughts that arose in my head about employing more nurses and increasing our pay for these extra responsibilities, but decided not to. Today however I feel incensed. I despair of those who make decisions about the NHS. Someone better re-read Lord Darzi's report which talked of 'an NHS fit for the future' being safe, effective and offering quality care to the patient. This I can see will not now be possible. As a clinical nurse specialist and having been employed by the NHS for the best part of 35 years I would never consider my pay as 'generous' in relation to my experience and what I achieve every day. I could earn more as a supervisor in a supermarket. However I am sure that alot of my colleagues would agree that job cuts could be made in many of the managerial departments in our hospitals. So I suggest you look again at that side of the NHS rather than making ridiculous decisions about the real workforce of the NHS
