Portuguese nurses to fill 'shortage' at East Anglian trust


Outrageous blog 7.39 most errors relate directly to communication and most patient satisfaction relates to the ability to communicate with patients with difficulties in hearing or understanding. Overseas recruitment is always a double edged sword as well as a short term measure - most go home after 2 years. Why do HEE/LETBs not realise we need to commission more nurse places and invest in skilling up the exisiting workforce asap? We are heading for yet another nurse shortage and HCAs are not the whole solution
