Do you have confidence in Britain's nurses?

Let's leave aside the fact that the median salary in the private sector is around the midpoint of the salary range for Band 5 nurses (the usual grade for qualified nurses), and that the top of the nursing pay grades is £97,478 (Band 9 point 54), and just consider the fact that nurses say they have no confidence in Andrew Lansley.

Why? Because instead of coming to give them a speech and walk away, he wants to attend a meeting with 50 of them where he can listen to their views.

I recall Mrs. Thatcher addressing a meeting of education types in the early 1970's. Whoever wrote her speech was an idiot. She would done far better to talk to fifty or so real teachers from a variety of state schools.
