"Systems such as red trays erode essential nursing skills"


You've hit the nail on the head. We need common sense and compassion not more tick boxes, however well meaning. But to allow nurses to do this we need trust and that means we need to have the right calibre recruited. Sadly some nurses, without their tick boxes to be held accountable to , will not see, hear or recognise what the patient might need.
