Health impact of long shifts must be investigated, says union


My trust is forcing staff to work long shifts,the staff are exhausted. We are also doing e rostering which always puts staff down for more hours than they are contracted for,all this is money driven,our managers dont care about staff welfare or patient trust has seen a massive exodus in qualified staff and I am truly afraid that we will lose more.Our managers just say that staff have had their own way for too long,and they have to get on with It!
