Nurses: grab the opportunity to influence commissioning


No Jenni, I absolutely disagree. In a lot of respects, it would have been better to have nothing at all, because then the RCN and commentators like yourself would not be declaring 'victory', and we as a profession would be able to fight properly for the involvement that we SHOULD have!!! Instead of sitting back and feeling smug and satiated with the few pathetic crumbs that have been thrown our way! I agree that there are others, say pharmacists for example, who have no say at all, and are worse off, but they should be fighting alongside us to HAVE a say! On another note, I would be VERY interested to hear the feedback or the content of some of those discussions myself, particularly if the RCN has actually been involved, because from the outside, it looks like they are doing very, very little to represent us.
