Pressure on frontline NHS staff ‘unfair and unsustainable’


I'm starting a nursing degree in September and have to admit that I'm seriously considering whether I'll be with the NHS after preceptorship. The opportunities aboard and in private hospitals promise the same (or higher) salaries with much less stress and pressure. I'm sure I'd be giving the Tories exactly what they wanted if I did that as well! Part of the problem with the bursary being taken away is going to be that some people will have zero reason to stay with the NHS, they won't 'owe' them anything.
