the problems are very real...i have faced them myself.
I worked in Mental Health before i joined the army....we were always understaffed...over worked and literaly upto our eyeballs in problems.
I can understand the reason for the reluctance but maybe they just need a better recruitment drive for the whole of the NHS...Primary and Acute
It doesna help when all the staff end up back stabbing the Nursing Auxiliaries for not working hard enough...and those who have been in hospital know
that the NA's run the ward.
