Hospital visited by PM plans to cut 400 posts over three years, claims Blears


“The right hon. Lady is confusing a cost-improvement programme with a cut" Doesn`t matter what Mr Lansley calls it, it still means less nurses on the shop floor to deliver front-line care. Are we to gather from his comments that those staff will be re-deployed (resource- shifted) to the community? No. thought not. Didn`t politicians of all political parties promise us a "new kind of politics" some years ago, whereby we might get some honesty and straigth-talking, without the plolitical spin and jargon? Please tell us the truth, we (Nurses) are relatively bright and can understand fairly complex messages/topics. I despair with this lot, and unfortunately the other lot don`t seem much better.
