Charity warns of neonatal nurse shortage


I work in Neonatal Intensive care and would agree that we are very often staffed to a minimum level and working at maximum occupancy! In addition to this budget cuts in health care mean that my trust is reviewing all our payscales. Nurses will be forced to reapply for our own jobs at band 6 with only enough funding for 25% of us to continue as band 6 nurses the remaining to be demoted and have pay cut to a band 5. There will be a great deal of experienced neonatal nurses looking for other jobs!
