The RCN Have Responded to the Budget Promises made in Regards to the Coronavirus

The RCN have called the government to try and support those who are returning to the NHS and the people who have worked there for quite some time. They want to make sure that they are given the right resources to try and handle the pandemic as the coronavirus moves through the country. The statement that has been released is essentially a three-point plan which is going to help manage the virus outbreak. £30 billion has been pledged so far and this is going to try and stop businesses from suffering. It is going to stop people from losing their jobs as well, as a result of the virus. The NHS have been promised a good chunk of this funding to try and make sure that they can bring back any retired staff. If you work in homecare or if you want to join the private nursing sector, then you should know that more needs to be done to try and give support to those who need it. An extra £6 billion is going to be given to the NHS England to try and fund GP surgeries and any new appointments that are being made. Health care commitments are now being more focused than ever on some of the frontline services. After all, they need to be given the support that they need to function properly, and they also need to be given the government’s support regarding nurses and those who have autism/learning disabilities.

Of course, everyone is doing everything they can at this given moment but some worry that it is not enough and that more needs to be done in order to make sure that the outbreak is being stopped. If not, then it could have a much bigger impact on the country.
