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.

    The underfunding of the NHS cannot be fixed by expecting our wonderful but already overstretched nurses to do more work for no more money.
