‘Fragile’ A&E departments hit by spate of nurse resignations


Tis is awful but its nothing new and can be seen across the NHS ! Our ward has lost 11 staff in the last six months, 2 left for career progression, the rest were simply tired of the unreasonable pressure and demands . Our team is constantly working harder than is humanly possible and it is not sustainable. Sickness levels have increased, we have many shifts without a nurse in charge in order to save the budget, but no one is saving the nurses, its impossible to provide even some of the basic care and the nurses fear that something will go horribly wrong and it will be us and not management that are called to account. The NHS needs to recognise that frontline staff are their most valuable asset and that this is not where money should be saved. This is why I will soon be one of the 11.
