'Jeremy Hunt’s speech downplayed nurses'


Consultants are not doing anything or very little to ensure that their patients are not cared for by a force that is under pressure from administrators, delivering the goods in 'sweat houses'. Hunt is seeking guidance from so many except from nurses. We have in the hospital I work more and more people employed to get medically fit patients out. Nurses are under pressure and under staffed, and we are the main players in getting patients out whether it be from in the hospital or being in the community. Those administrators don't mind because they have a job. They just keep going in circles with computers, pens and paper. The new target is the OT they feel the OTs should be getting the elderly people out sooner too much waiting time for equipment etc. In fact they want the OTs to do the dirty job of kicking the elderly patients out. Other trouble is they cut down on the phamacist hours so patients are waiting longer for TTOs. Such fools they do not understand that the heath service involves a strong chain from every angle to work right.
