Privatisation of the NHS- Nurses
Private healthcare contractors have been experiencing some difficulty recruiting and retaining nursing staff due to existing legislation requiring students to register with the Nursing Medical Council and complete and pass an extended, (3-12 months) rigorous course of training and testing and supervised work. The foregoing will be, (from October 2014) replaced with an on-line multiple tick test and short oral exam, (which can be completed overseas. Problem solved. There will be an influx of NURSES, (of sorts) from overseas. This will make things so much easier for the Private Healthcare provider but place NHS patients at risk. Oh dear. Scotland, if you value our NHS in Scotland vote, “Yes” in the referendum. A, “no” vote will bring the NHS England down upon your heads.
