Staff shortages spark warning for mental health trust


Oh and the supposed inconsistency in nursing leadership and changes in the director of nursing is a red herring: those posts are completely irrelevant to sharp end nurses and IME DoNs just rubber stamp whatever the CE tells them to and trouser the huuuuuuge off scale salaries. As a Band 7 I had no contact with an no support from the senior nursing structure in my trust: we would invite the DoN or his minions to come to our nurses' meetings to assist us on contentious professional issues - y'know, what with them being our chain of professional accountability - but we were lucky if we even got an acknowledgment our our - very polite - requests. "Nursing leadership" is verging on oxymoronic.
