Health impact of long shifts must be investigated, says union


Some of us prefer to work longer shifts plus patients like it as they say it improves continuity of care. I for one will retire immediately if I am forced to work 7.5 hour shifts again. I want a work life balance not a life where I am only allowed 4 days off a fortnight which sometimes involves a 10 day stretch.
