Student nurses need duty to speak out ‘ingrained’ in training, says Hunt


Hunt is partly right - but the culture of honesty and openness, also needs to be present within management. Commenting with others in The Times yesterday (page 9), Mark Porter of the BMA commented that "problems were often the result of an oppressive culture and poor systems created by bosses" and he objects to medics apologising for things they beleive were down to other people. I wonder if politicians are ever going to be honest about their mistakes while still in office - I've not seen much evidence of that.
