RCN calls for new NHS pay deal to extend to GP practice nurses


I think the government will screw partners financially until there aren’t any left. They’re basically getting work done for free, why would they stop? They’ll deal with the consequences later, for five quid saved today trumps a bill for £15 in 2 years on someone else’s watch. Nurses are a different animal, they’re salaried and employed and you can’t get them to work for free. Just like the all salaried GP service they keep pushing. Employing people on a salary has consequences, their rights are easier to identify, it’s less easy to pretend. Salaried folk won’t work for free , yes they are easier to control but they’re less flexible, less interested and ultimately less efficient (aka more expensive)..cause they don’t own the service and as a result they don’t really care.
