'We have allowed the nursing role to be denigrated'


Firstly, I really value and respect nurses. Secondly This must be one of the toughest times to be a nurse in the modern NHS. Every single nurse working in the NHS at the moment fighting target setting, management and cuts to give the best care they can while being attacked by almost everybody are brilliant I am soo proud of you Lucy andTrudy and Carol and everybody else here. Nursing has got tougher, must harder. Yet you are all still here, contstantly giving patients the best care and love and attention you can. When you have had enough, when you are about to give up, when you are crying always, always remember there are thousands of nurses out there, always remember you are healing patients, making life better for them. They know deep down that "someone cares for me and this someone is a nurse" You are not dirt You are not to be walked over You are not to be trodden on Why? You are strong You are tough You have compassion YOU ARE NURSES YOU ARE ALL, EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU. H E R O E S
