Nurse and midwife strike action suspended after new pay offer


I think about the patients and not about politics, Politics are of no real interest to me, Patient care was and is all that interests me. Think about your loved ones and also yourselves being a patient , then think what would happen if thenurses were on strike. I have never agreed to strike action in principle, and I was nursing in the time when nurses were really underpaid and not like today, your wages are no where as low as when I was training and working in the seventies and eighties.In fact the wags are good today. Patient care was my prority so please dont tell me what I am. I know when was a single mother on low wages in the seventies ( and they were really low) I then would not strike, I trained as a nurse and the care of patients was my priority, it was hard then but I survived. I am glad that the money is better for you all now, but what they say is true, the more you have the more you want. Please consider the sick a bit more. I
