  • Comment on: Band four assistants 'no substitute' for nurses

    steve howard's comment 27 November, 2009 1:48 pm

    Band 1 or A grade HCA's already carry out task such as observations and Blood pressures. A HCA who has worked to get to band 3 or 4 should expect to do so much more.
    As a Band three HCA I carry out clinical skills that the trained nurses and doctors just do not have time for. These include cannulation and phlebotomy. Where has Mr Butcher been living.
