'Nurses must never be talked out of their role'


"The review into the role of healthcare support workers, carried out by The Sunday Times journalist Camilla Cavendish, was prevented from looking at regulation of these staff by its terms of reference. HCA regulation was recommended by Robert Francis QC and is widely seen as a move that could have the greatest impact on standards of care." however, camilla cavendish has expressed an opinion about hca registration, " "my view on that is that we saw terrible things happen at mid-staffs where nurses were registered, and i don't think that registration on it's own actually solves this problem, i think what we need is proper leadership and management, which is in every care home and every hospital, where employers are held responsible for the quality of those staff and they're held responsible for meeting certain basic standards of competence and caring and i think that's more important than actually just registering on it's own."
