All new nurses could face checks on compassion and values


'... being caring and compassionate. If you can’t do that what hope have you got?' Although this is a quality hard to test candidate's for, and hard to apply if staff are rushed off their feet most of the time, I do feel certain that the organisations representing patients will approve of this move. 'They didn't seem to really care !' is a complaint frequently made by upset patients and upset bereaved relatives - and it also upsets most staff. 'The DH will then consult on changes to the document, which the NHS is required to follow.' That statement isn't as clear-cut as its wording implies !
