Nursing in Practice launches practice nurse morale survey

Nursing in Practice launches practice nurse morale survey

Nursing in Practice is conducting a survey to learn more about practice nurses’ current morale, workload and the wider state of general practice.

Practice nurses can share their thoughts on pressing issues – including the backlog of care, staffing and PPE – and their own experiences for a chance to win £100 of John Lewis vouchers.

The survey, called ‘Light at the end of the tunnel?’, will run until 11 February.

Nursing in Practice editor Carolyn Scott said: ‘We know practice nurses have worked – and continue to work – incredibly hard throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.

‘We also know the landscape in primary care is changing faster and more dramatically than ever. So, we want to hear how these changes have impacted you, as well as what you and your colleagues are feeling and thinking as we move towards the third year of Covid.’

The survey comes amid concerns about high absence rates because of the Omicron variant, nurses reporting that they want to leave their jobs because of Covid pressures and burnout, as well as concerns about a growing backlog of care to tackle from the Covid-19 pandemic.
