'Staff don’t need another stick to be beaten with'


Tink, this is out-of-place but I'm trying to 'catch up with you'. I am planning to use your earlier comment (below) in my 'stuff', because I really like it and it is very short, very clear and blindingly correct. And your final sentence can be linked with some of the Neuberger LCP Review's comments quite neatly. I will of course attribute it to Tinkerbell and NT, but would you like to be described as a Mental Health Nurse, or as a mental nurse, or as something else ? 'As a pixie' isn't acceptable, as it would reduce the 'gravitas' of the quote. Cheers, Mike As a 'simpleton'(George's expression with which I agree) all I can say is that if I am in excruciating pain without any hope of making a recovery as I have a terminal illness then I would like as much pain relief as I can have to relieve my pain even if it kills me. If I have the potential of making a recovery then I would want as much pain relief as I can tolerate without it killing me. I would certainly hope that if that situation occurs I will not have a team unsure of what to do debating it whilst I scream out in pain 'for Gods sake somebody please help me'.
