Headline

Thousands more nursing associates and nurses to train each year, pledges Hunt

Comment

If this government genuinely cared about nurse shortages they would re introduce the bursary acknowledging that properly qualified nurses are required for the challenges of the role today. The role of the nursing associate hasnt't been officially decided and the NMC havnt agree to their regulation as yet. How on earth can this be seen as an answer to staffing problems? Despite his "concerns" for our health and family life and his faux praise of the nursing profession Hunt couldnt quite bring himself to agree to a decent pay rise. Things can only get worse.
