Regulator finds 'serious' nursing shortage at Aberdeen hospital


Anonymous 6Dec 09.05 I agree with what you say but understaffing, gang warfare and a longstanding culture of fear is a bigger deterrent to staff recruitment than Aberdeen house prices. Lots of highly skilled staff already have houses there and are voting with their feet. It will take time to reverse the endemic culture of fear; not just in Aberdeen, but in the majority of Scottish NHS Boards. The majority of Board members have no health care backgrounds and fail to listen to frontline staff.
