My concern is that while staying in Tameside Hospital I was disgusted that a ward with 27 people is being looked after by 2/3 nurses. These nurses were run ragged, busy all the time, no time for breaks, etc. and people wonder why the NHS is as bad as it is. Management is the problem, simple as that. This all starts from the core being (management). I take my hat off to all nurses/doctors etc. as I have seen what they have to do for myself with my own eyes (terrible).
PALS were a waste of time – not interested.
