'6Cs must end the years of make do and mend'


I heard Jane Cummings being interviewed on Radio 4 on 15th March 13. She was asked for her opinion on what lay behind poor care in general. Not once did she mention inadequate staffing levels as a possible cause. This was a disgraceful response, especially since The Nursing Times and RCN have highlighted this so often in recent months. But no doubt this would not go down well with Jane's political masters. It is disgraceful that this woman continues to ignore under-staffing and resultant nurse burnout as a cause of poor care.
