Health secretary launches community 'named nurse' plan


Anonymous | 5-Jul-2013 7:34 pm "Nurses paid at the old G grade did have continuing responsibility." Continuing responsibility meant that you took all reasonable measures to ensure that there were adequate appropriately skilled and trained staff to look after the patients in your area. It was not the same as being at the beck and call of everyone for every bout of sickness absence or staffing issue, when you were off duty. When I was a G grade, the world and his wife thought that it was perfectly okay to phone me at home in my own family time, when my long working week was done. We must NEVER return to that.
