'Calling nurses a drain on public finances is a downright insult'


I was brought up to believe that investing extra for good quality pays off, even if it means sacrificing something less essential for a while, and that doing the opposite can be, and usually is, false economy and can lead to higher costs in the long run. I still believe this, and especially in the light of the current debate on the NHS and adequate staffing and infrastructure. where would the country be and in what state if all those listed in the post above withdrew their services or chose other careers with more attractive working conditions.
