finally a post has been put up about the financial situation in the nhs.not all people would like to work in areas were trust are not in deficit.some have to pay back their student loans and offset the fact that the cost of living might be to high for them and they cant afford to live in those areas
yep i have been poached from a developing country but my sights are set on moving towards the USA.i do on an adhoc basis donate funds to my old school of nursing although they dont need it.(goes towards IT facilities)
there are to may managers and bean counters in the nhs and the all are trying to justify their respective position. in my opinion this goverment has got it wrong.nurses are part of the frontline service providers in any nations health.if you undercut funding towards that then you end up with a whole range of problems and slowly but surely we are suffering from that at the moment.
i speak to many nurses having left the nhs and alot of young british nurses cant wait to finish and move to australia or new zealand
.despite all the fancy titles the goverment come out with like extended powers in prescribing medicine to ER style physians assistants the writing is on the wall for me. where are the nursing resources going to come from,the funding for these projects and despite the fact that nurse want to move up the professional ladder(perfectly ligitimate) who is going to take care of these patients
the NMC(nursing management council) has not publish for the last 18 months data on nurses registering on the role versus those exiting from the uk.it might make for some grim reading.[IMG]images/icons/icon10.gif[/IMG]
