  • Comment on: Trusts say they want to 'reform' not replace Agenda for Change

    Tony Wallace's comment 25 March, 2015 1:46 pm

    Changes to unsocial hours pay will see staff refusing to work extra shift and a marked increase in the need for agency work to do these shift where I am sure the agencies will still charge extra for them. This is short sighted penny pinching antics from fat cat bosses and MPs.

  • Comment on: Standards dropping as NHS staff made redundant, claims Labour

    I wish that MP's would stop using the NHS as a political football. One minute they are kicking the workforce while they are down the next they are stating what they can do for it. All parties are as bad as each other. Why trust people who deny us a pay rise yet give themselves a 9% rise.

  • Comment on: Compulsory certificate of care for HCAs

    Tony Wallace's comment 22 October, 2013 6:16 pm

    I welcome this announcement. I am currently a HCA and feel disgusted at how little training I received prior to being expected to provide care. I had no training in providing personal care or feeding patients. This training would not only set a minimal standard but also help to weed out some HCA's who are not fit for the job. HCA's port folio of acceptable tasks is forever increasing and it is not uncommon for them to be taking bloods or carrying diagnostic procedures that used to be the job of techs or nurses.
