What’s the latest from the forum?

Every week we’ll take a peek inside Nursing Times’ forum so you can read all about it …

Nurses on TV: “Should nurses more routinely advise on medical TV programmes?” asks a reader. It might help improve the image of nursing and it could make medical TV more educational. Although another reader points out:“But would you really want to watch a realistic programme?! We see that all day, every day!” Join in for yourself, the conversation continues …

Hobbies after work:A reader seeks inspiration for an after-work hobby. Cross-country skiing, swimming and typography were some of the suggested favourites. And one more? “Ballet! It’s great for fitness and poise, and it relaxes the mind!” Do you have hot hobbies to add?

And that favourite subject, “Car parking – let’s sort it out!” All parking in hospitals should be free, says a reader. But not everyone agrees “I really think that’s too simplistic. What about if everyone parks in the hospital to go to Tescos?” Good point. And as someone else comments “Can’t they just work out how much it actually costs and then charge something nominal like 50p a day - for visitors and staff?” What’s your view on car parking at your hospital? Join in the debate ….

And finally, a reader would like some advice. “I’m currently a HCA in a GP practice and I really want to further my career in nursing. I need some advice best way to do this… please?” Can you help?
