Exclusive survey: Nurses underpaid, overworked and undervalued


For the last 20 years we have raised the same issues, with the same so called Managers, Chief Executives (we are on our 6th in the last 12 years) with different Governments and with different CQC audit boards. In the last 20 years, if not longer, NOTHING has changed. It would be simple to mend, but no one listens and NO ONE has the balls to do anything about it, because when you try, they set you up and you are harrassed, intimidated and bullied,and that is why nurses are haemorrhaging away from the Profession. Who can remember the nurse who committed suicide for being bullied by her Trust in London? How to solve it? Here are some clues!! Re-train your managers to be Business Managers - Professional ones - not the baboons we have in place now. Make Mandatory Training a stackable offence for all Sisters and specialists if they fail to let their staff attend. Make sure your staff understand what they are being taught via a feedback system. Make all Senior Nurses, Doctors, Consultants work the full 24/7 work rota,not just band 5 & 6's and below. Don't promote incompetence!! These people are the downfall of the NHS! Sack dangerous nurses. It's a breach of the NMC guidelines and a breach of the Law, so why are dangerous nurses still in their jobs?! If untrained staff are showing signs of dangerous practice or have no care or compassion, GET RID OF THEM! IT'S SIMPLE, SO WHY IS NO ONE DOING IT!! As far as I can see from my experience, it's because no one will take responsibility for this whole mess that we are in! Vote winner if you did it, but as I said I am not holding my breath!!
