Changes to district nurse working meet opposition


Don't quite get the issue? In some areas staff already cover these times in one of 3 shifts - early, core or late with a separate night shift. I have used mobile working in the Community for 2 years - works in most areas but need to aware of any patch without 3G coverage which is time wasting. Patients ring us directly - and no they don't abuse use of the the mobile phone! As a DN who has also worked shifts in Hospital perhaps it is time to move into the 21st century and improve patient access.
