Rising NHS staff exits require urgent government action, says UNISON
Commenting on new figures from the Nursing and Midwifery Council published today (Wednesday) that show a rise in the number of people leaving the professional register, UNISON head of health Sara Gorton said: “With more than 500 nurses and midwives leaving every week, there’s no room for government complacency. “The pandemic has left deep scars on staff, many of whom are no longer willing to put up with the constant pressure or the lack of value put on their incredible work. “Ministers must ensure the reality of NHS work doesn’t push new recruits into less pressured and better paid work outside the health...

UNISON fights to protect rights of workers with long COVID
UNISON general secretary Christina McAnea has written a strongly worded letter to the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) accusing it of misrepresenting the Equality Act 2010 when it comes to workers with long COVID and their rights as disabled people.
