GMB call on Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust management to re-think plans to open additional beds at Royal Sussex County Hospital until they secure additional nursing staff needed to cover them “Any Trust strategy based on desperation will, our members believe, unfortunately impact negatively on patient safety and care, staff morale, and the overall retention of staff”, say GMB Southern https://www.gmb-southern.org.uk/news/gmb-call-bsuh-rethink-add-beds-until-add-nurse-staff
Exploitation of outsourced workers on two-tier pay and conditions is the price paid for Wandsworth council tax being half of the London average “This exploitation of lower paid workers, many of whom are migrant workers, working directly for the public in a borough with average earnings for residents working full time of £64,761 has to stop since these lower paid workers deserve the support of the all fair minded people”, says GMB Southern https://www.gmb-southern.org.uk/news/exploitation-pays-for-wandsworths-low-council-tax
BSUH NHS Trust return paediatrics theatre team’s milk delivery after trust admits staff were informed unofficially that deliveries would stop “Let’s hope that such a quick remedial decision can be made to the more substantive issues for staff surrounding on-call within the Children’s Hospital Theatre Team and other Trust on-call areas”, says GMB Southern https://www.gmb-southern.org.uk/news/theatre-teams-milk-return-rach
Claims that medics who are currently voting on whether or not to strike over changes to on-call working have been told they must now buy their own milk for tea and coffee have been strongly denied by hospital bosses. Staff at the Royal Alexandra Children's Hospital are being balloted by the GMB Unio.
