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


It is interesting that Sir Robert Francis has just commented that in fitness to practise investigations, the wider 'working enviroment' needs to be considered as well (put simply, was the problem really caused by what I might call 'management diktat' or by a chronic shortage of resources). There is a disturbing tendency, for people to call for EVERYONE ELSE to be 'honest and transparent', but to see themselves [and their role] as being some sort of 'special case, and 'exempt''.
