Nurses: grab the opportunity to influence commissioning


Mike, I did say that of course it would be good to have even greater nurse involvement, but that we should be grateful for having some representation recognised. In a perfect world, we want more more more, but as I said in a previous blog, having come across other health professionals who have absolutely no say outlined, it is an achievement - however small you may feel it. As for my "inside knowledge", Nursing Times has listened in at the RCN Congress when Andrew Lansley met nurses, and I also know that some nurses were incredibly persuasive of the importance of their role in the listening exercise, because the RCN has been heavily involved in co-ordinating those and has fed back some of the content of those discussions.
