Nursing in Practice survey on GPN terms and conditions closes today

Nursing in Practice survey on GPN terms and conditions closes today

Practice nurses today have their last chance to take part in a brief Nursing in Practice survey on their experience of terms and conditions during the Covid-19 crisis.

Nurses can tell us about what holiday, sick leave and workload, for example, employers have given them during the pandemic – and be in for a chance to win £100 of John Lewis vouchers.

Nursing in Practice editor Emily Twinch said: ‘We have heard of variable terms and conditions across practices during the pandemic.

‘Our survey aims to find out practice nurses’ experience during the pandemic and just how supported, or not, they have been by their employers.’

Last month, Nursing in Practice’s in-depth piece The forgotten frontline showed how practice nurses felt overlooked during the pandemic despite their vital work, particularly in administering Covid jabs.

Nurses also said they feel ‘let down’ over pay and working conditions, a Queens’ Nursing Institute survey published in January showed.

Nursing in Practice has previously published survey results on racism experienced by nurses and midwives, and workloads for care home staff since the Covid-19 outbreak.

Click here to complete the Nursing in Practice survey by 26 February. It should only take around five minutes to answer the questions and gives you the chance to win £100 of John Lewis vouchers.
