New review to look at nurse retirement plans


when all these austerity measures and cut backs of staff started and we were suddenly expected to do the impossible and were given new and often unrealistic directives from above from those who had never had any contact with us or with patients, and then told to organise ourselves better if we complained or said our staffing levels were unsafe, I did wonder whether those of us still with a job but totally overworked beyond coping were better off or whether it was those who had just lost their jobs and unable to find another? I think, nevertheless, those of us still in employment and with an income were probably still the better off tough though it was and frustrating to no longer be able to offer our patients the holistic and high standards of care we had previously given and had been trained for. At least we knew where our next meal would come from and still provide a roof over our heads.
