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.

    Betsi Cadwaladr health board is changing nurses' rotas to save money. It will mean nurses working an extra half hour unpaid per shift. Oppose this attack on nurses' conditions. Please back nurses and sign our petition: https://www.wrexhamplaid.cymru/nurse_rotas?recruiter_id=10736

    They work hard enough now. Why not take this time from those who think up these stupid vindictive ideas. They are probanly on twice the wages anyway.

    This will just kill the staff goodwill which is what the NHS suvives on. Stop paying all these consultancy firms to tell you what you want to do anyway Betsi.
