Health- 20,000 UK Nursing Shortage due to Government Cuts

Front page news on The Guardian this morning is the claim that patients are being put at risk because NHS

hospitals are functioning with 20,000 fewer nurses than they need across England. According to Royal College of

Nursing chiefs, as many as one in six nursing posts at some hospitals are being kept vacant, as managers try to

meet the Whitehall-ordered drive to save £20 billion by 2015.

The figures come from responses to a Freedom of Information request from 61 out of 161 trusts, revealing an

average 6% vacancy rate.

The college’s report concludes understaffing on this scale ‘will have serious consequences for patient safety’
