Conservatives: HCAs part of nursing 'profession'


Dear all I am a band 3 health care assistant and do no try to be a "registered nurse" in anyway shape or form. I also understand the fact that you all have the "underpinning knowledge" behind what you practice. However run your ward, department or clinic without us and see how far you get. Who does the basic care? Who gives you the information to write your care plan and nursing progress? Who does all the work that you delegate. That will be me! So cut us some slack and for once give us a thank you or pat on the back for the job we help you do. Anyone of you who has a bit of truth in you could not honestly say you could run your area without us!! A very fed up healthcare assistant undervalued by trained members of staff!!! but I am "just an auxiliary" aren't I?
