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


why don't the NMC understand about acknowledgement of contribution after a long career in nursing. I sent in my resignation on retirement and to my surprise got two standardised letters lecturing me about fraudulent practice without registration, and one with a photocopied signature of Dickon Weir himself. It is hard enough giving up one's registration after a life in nursing and all one has worked hard to achieve without such a cold undignified send off.
