RCN Members Have a Clear Opportunity to try and Make Leaders Accountable

Action by certain members of the RCN could really help to secure the workforce crisis that is happening right now. The College welcomed the ambitious direction, but they have also said that when they deliver the plan, they need to be very clear and they also need to be accountable as well. The population’s needs have to be met, and they are now seeking views to try and change the legislation. They say that they are going to try and help deliver the plan and they also need to make sure that they demand changes to the right proposals. Clinical commissioning groups need to have a legal obligation to understand the needs of the workforce. This even applies to those who are a member of a nurse agency or even part of a nursing recruitment agency.

Clinical commissioning groups need to have a legal obligation to try and plan out the workforce and they also need to hold corporate accountability too. This needs to be based on evidence and it also needs to take into account the judgement of any senior nurses.

Patricia Marquis is the RCN director and she believes that they have a window of opportunity to try and make a huge difference here, and that no improvements can be made at all unless you address the shortage of the staff. She has stated that you need to speak loudly if you want your voice to be heard and this is very good advice to say the least. Action needs to be taken against the workforce crisis that is happening right now and as time goes by, it would appear that nothing is being done about this at all. This is not good news to say the least, but if RCN members continue to campaign then progress might be made.
