CNO tells nurses to carve out a role in GP-led NHS


Nurses in General Practice, have pushed forwarded government demands,they greatly enhance the quality of care in GP surgeries and yet very few have been given partnership rights, or agenda for change terms and conditions. In the area where I work they are not being consulted on commissioning. Who is going to regulate the GP's?, what is going to happen with practice nurse training and regulation. Already Practice nurses are out in a limb, with the provider/comissioning split. I can't see large numbers of nurses wanting to join our ranks and being employed by GP's/consortia. It may sound a great opportuity -for GP's to fill their pockdets. The past 20 years of Practice Nursing has not pushed the nurse forward, the GP's have all the power and do not other health professionals unless delegating.
