NHS Estates have Intensified their Need to Fill Nurse Shortages

A lot of people welcome even more investments in the NHS but it’s important that equal attention is paid to the workforce crisis. This is especially the case when you look at the team leaders and their profession. Their caution is welcome and even Boris Johnson revealed that the 20 areas in England are going to receive a share of a huge pot of money. He has announced this so that they can try and improve their hospital and even their equipment. In his first policy announcement, Mr. Johnson stated that the money is going to provide life-saving equipment and that it is also going to provide new wards too. New beds are also going to be added, and this could mean great things for the future, especially for those who work in private nursing or even in homecare.

Some of the projects that are being done include funding the creation of a 40-bed unit that is going to be designed for those who have learning disabilities. They are also going to create an adult mental health unit in Manchester, and then another children’s hospital in Cornwall. Mr. Johnson has also pledged another £1 billion to try and revamp some of the programs that are existent. There are some key figures and they all show that midwifery have welcomed the announcement and that they are also trying to tackle key shortages too. Dame Donna Kinnair is the chief executive and even the general secretary of the College of Nursing. She has called for an even bigger investment as she believes that this is the only way to make a true difference to everything that is happening right now. To say that something needs to be done would be an understatement.
