There's changes afoot, and it's not all good news ...
Lynn Young Primary Healthcare Adviser for the RCN
Being a thoroughly and often infuriatingly optimistic person by nature it is unusual for me to write in sombre mood. I have always believed that nurses need to read upbeat and cheerful articles – what good does misery do for nurses trying to do their best under difficult circumstances? But I do have a responsibility to inform nurses about what our politicians have been plotting and what their latest demands are on overworked nurses.
