NHS pressures to fuel agency staff spend

Comment

a manager told me once agency staff comes off a different budget and works out cheaper. I assume possibly as they don't have to pay annual leave, sick leave, training needs or pension contributions etc., neither does it provide continuity of care but the patient is just a pawn in a game, as we all are, so what does that matter. It' all about the money in our new cut throat privatised NHS.
