UKIP calls for revalidation and CQC inspections to be halted


To the nurse who thinks that doctors don't get bullied. How I laughed! When I was a junior doctor, I was treated dreadfully by young female nurses as was my very pretty friend. When I did the night rounds after endless days on call, I'd have the keys thrown at me and was told "get the IVs yourself, you're paid more than me". The young male doctors on the other hand were met with coffee and all the IV drugs laid out neatly on trays. Funnily enough when I married and got pregnant all those ridiculous night calls to write up paracetamol or change the n.Saline written up by the anaesthetist to 0.9% saline (or the nurses wouldn't give it) dried up completely and the work load and lack of sleep halved.
