If GPs gave practice nurses better training and support, they could transform primary care


To anonymous above! nursing is a vocation. If the nurses at your practice only spend 63% of their time with patient care, something is far wrong..... this is not a 'hard luck' story. This is reality... like many other public servants, times are difficult. nurses have had a hike in NMC fees RCN fees and pay cuts in real terms. Nurses are seeing more patients in general practice,( Not less!) and caring for more vulnerable complex patients. The nurses at your practice maybe letting our profession down!
