The hospitals are often hiring highly paid managers and leaving new grad nurses on the scrapheap-denying them jobs. The only "nursing staff" that they do hire are untrained unregistered carers who cannot do the job and this is what most of the staff on the wards these days are.

I work in an NHS hospital. The ratio of registered nurses to patients on the general wards is appalling. Horrific. I have never seen anything like it and I have worked all over the world. The hospitals are often hiring highly paid managers and leaving new grad nurses on the scrapheap-denying them jobs. The only "nursing staff" that they do hire are untrained unregistered carers who cannot do the job and this is what most of the staff on the wards these days are. The public, in their ignorance, thinks that these untrained and unregistered carers are "nurses". But they are not nurses. The few actual nurses are running between so many patients that they are completely ineffective. They are under information overload and are trying to do too many things at once.
Registered nurse to patient ratios are a massive factor with superbugs, infection control, and overall patient survival. Typical of the NHS to worry about crosses and muslim dress rather than invest in qualified nurses and sort out the real problems.

This is hillarious! Yissachar IS Jewish, as I recall from previous conversations we have had in the past. Anti-semitism is hatred towards Jews, not Muslims.
Person speaking one of a group of related languages, presumably derived from a common language, Semitic (see Semitic languages). The term came to include Arabs, Akkadians, Canaanites, some Ethiopians, and Aramaean tribes including Hebrews. Semitic tribes migrated from the Arabian Peninsula, beginning c. 2500 bc, to the Mediterranean coast, Mesopotamia, and the Nile River delta. In Phoenicia, they became seafarers. In Mesopotamia, they blended with the civilization of Sumer. The Hebrews settled at last with other Semites in Palestine.
Despite the use of the prefix "anti," the terms Semitic and anti-Semitic are not directly opposed to each other. Antisemitism refers specifically to prejudice against Jews alone and in general, despite the fact that there are other speakers of Semitic languages (e.g. Arabs, Ethiopians, or Assyrians) and that not all Jews speak a Semitic language.
