New review to look at nurse retirement plans


Anonymous | 7-Aug-2012 12:12 pm from Anonymous | 7-Aug-2012 10:37 am "I just wonder what age you think of getting out...." I would say the earlier, the better. That's why I said, ".....those who can." Better still, don't enter Nursing in the first place. I am in my fifties and, like yourself, I am fit. I worry about the younger staff and the future they face with the increasing burdens being placed on the NHS wth fewer resources available. Anonymous | 7-Aug-2012 11:09 am I agree. As a union steward for many years, I got fed up with the apathy amongst nurses when it actually came to backing up legitimate complaints with effective action. That said, the organisations representing nurses could do better. When will nurses learn that acting with unity would transform the NHS and improve the lot of patients and nurses? I still cast my vote and stand on the picket lines, and, whilst I am aware that a 'dead horse' and 'flogging' feature heavily in these activities, I will continue to do so.
