Nurses urged to ‘speak up’ if they are feeling unsafe in the Covid 19 pandemic
The Nursing Times reports that the four Chief Nursing Officers and the NMC have issued a joint open letter outlining how they will continue to support nursing and midwifery staff during the pandemic. It comes as Covid-19 cases across the UK continue to rise sharply. The letter reassured the professions that the NMC would “always consider the specific facts of the case, taking into account the factors relevant to the environment in which a professional is working”. Referring to the NMC Code, the nurse leaders reiterated that professionals “must continue to adhere to the core principles of nursing and midwifery practice”.
