Unions back NT training campaign

  • Comment
The nursing profession’s three largest unions have given their backing to NT’s major new campaign Time Out For Training.

Unison, the RCN and Unite/CPHVA have all told NT they support the campaign’s aim to improve access to post-registration training for nurses.

Additionally, more than a 100 people signed the campaign’s petition last week, calling on the prime minister to ring-fence training funds. Add your name by visiting http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/TOFTnurse

Junior health minister Lord Darzi told parliament last week he was satisfied rules governing how government training funds were spent were robust enough, despite NT revealing that 52% of nurses were unable to access adequate training (NT News, 15 January, p2).
