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


I have not heard one positive comment from nurses about the work Jane Cummins has done so far. It is clear that the expert views of highly trained frontline staff are not wanted or listened to. Staff are not valued. The entire medical/nursing process and interface are simply not understood by those making pronouncements on how it should go forwards. The insistence on "pathways" which patients deviate from at their peril, rather than expert individualised care in response to patient need is dangerous. Would these people be telling Honda engineers how to design a car? Or telling your local solicitor that they are going to have to type all their own letters? And that they will have to do it all for more hours and less money? I won't even mention the average 10 hours per week unpaid overtime I do simply to keep on top of my job...with no thanks or acknowledgement. Please, will somebody at the top listen and act on what is beiong said in all these posts.
