  • Description
    [Excerpt from authors] This report is the annual review of the UK nursing labour market, commissioned by the Royal College of Nursing. Twelve months ago, our report for 2004/5 concluded that the nursing labour market was entering a period of uncertainty, with signs of redundancies and recruitment freezes emerging in some parts of the NHS, particularly in England. We highlighted the concern that short term and unplanned responses to financial difficulties had the potential to undermine workforce planning and store up problems for future years. These concerns have become much more pronounced in recent months.
