The image of nursing: The handmaiden


I agree Mike, but it is not the responsibility of any programme maker, particularly ones from another country to be responsible for promoting the role of British nurses, particularly when we do such a rubbish job at it ourselves. They are responsible for making entertainment and given the popularity of those programmes they are getting it right and we are not. I re-assert my point that our professional and representative bodies are the ones letting us down - not House or ER.
