Would Nurse Training Be Beneficial?

The Nursing Times discussed something that has been on our mind lately too – Nurse training.

We have asked our candidates about this, and tried to get a feel for what nurses are after and how they feel towards training and their options throughout their career.

What has been established by The Nursing Times is;

Nurses and other health service staff should be offered more leadership training opportunities within their own organisations to help transform models of care in the way outlined in NHS England’s five-year plan, according to a health think-tank. [1]

For those that may not know, the NHS five-year plan aimed to have most healthcare professionals to be open to furthering their skills, responsibilities and careers. What we want to know is – do any workers in the primary care sector feel they have room to branch out should they want?

And do you feel training is the answer to many problems the NHS face?

Finally, we are also interested in what training you think would be valuable to have.

Please let us know your thoughts: socialmedia@primarycare-jobs.co.uk

NHS Staff; Are You Afraid To Speak?

Recent reports are starting to ask if the NHS pressures have resulted in intimidating their staff into not speaking out about their problems at work.

This is an interesting topic to discuss, because the staff are always the heart of the healthcare environment.

It has been said that a ‘significant proportion of NHS workers would not raise concerns – either because they were afraid of the potential consequences, or because they felt nothing would be done.’ [1]

We want to know if you feel this is you? Do you feel your voice isn’t heard? Or, do you feel it wouldn’t make a difference if it was?

The same report stated that workers were scared to voice their opinions due to fear of bullying even. The very fact that staff are at conflict with each other shows the real severity that lies within NHS environments. In some cases staff feel so intimidated that there has been a rise in suicide rates.

We still hope that the NHS is finding solutions to it’s problems. But something that needs attention internally is clearly not thought about often, if at all.

So please let us know your concerns.

Do you feel unappreciated or intimidated in your position?
