North Wales nurse rotas

Betsi Cadwaladr health board has engaged expensive consultants to come up with a brainwave to save money:  Extend nurses' shifts by an extra half hour without pay.

The proposal, currently out to consultation, would mean a nurse currently working a 12 hrs 30 minute shift (with half an hour unpaid break) expected to work the same shift but only get paid for 11 hrs 30 minutes.
 
Currently many nurses take their breaks on their wards or unit and are effectively on call in an emergency. This is purely down to the goodwill of hard-working staff and this vindictive approach threatens to undermine nursing morale and goodwill totally.
 
The changes will effectively mean full-time nurses having to work an extra shift a month to make up the unpaid hours.

    Knowing how hard nurses work, and knowing just how often they HAVE TO work through or cut short their breaks, I feel this proposal is a huge slap in the face to those who are already so dedicated, and who do their very best in increasingly difficult situations. It will stamp on morale yet again, and make life that little bit harder when there’s absolutely no need. I’ve not heard anything positive about this proposal at all.
