Royal colleges 'shocked' by regulator chief's staffing levels comments

Well done to Anonymous 6.48 pm and 6.49 pm - sounds like the Judge in your particular case could see the bigger picture and the long term implications. How horribly stressful for you to have gone through all that, what a worry it must have been, especially if you ended up paying the costs. I hope that this is now settled and that the NMC do not decide to mount an appeal - the big organisations seem to be able to dip into a seemingly endless purse until they, 'win'. In the past, there 3 nurses who tried to do the right thing with a large PCT - we won the moral case but lost the financial case as we 3 did not have access to the 'public purse'. The NHS is expensive to run and costs will get bigger - there needs to be honest dialogue on the future of the NHS, to keep on crossing our fingers and holding our breath will only work for so long. It seems that government policy is to make the NHS fail and collapse - there is need of more Judges to point out to the NMC, (and the government) where the NHS should be heading.
