Nurse recruitment problems spark ‘urgent’ Mid Staffs safety review


I think you will find that this is not just Mid Staffs facing recruitment challenges. Its across the country, acute and community. something needs to be done to address the root cause which to me seems to be a shortage of nurses. Its good that Mid Staffs can say "reputation of Mid Staffs” and “uncertainty about the future” are the main reasons for not being able to recruit and retain staff. I dont think that is the problem, i think the problem is a shortage of nurses in general. Most trusts are considering or going abroad to recruit.
