According to a recent report by Sky News, 60,000 health care jobs could be at risk in the future.
The Royal College of Nursing Study have hinted that community care is in trouble following healthcare reforms. Nurses are currently stretched with duties and are, according to the report, not managing to meet all of their patients’ needs.
The College has stated that nurses visiting communities and visiting patients at home were ‘overburdened’ due to recent cuts and a lack of investment.
However the Government has assured that the number of nurses to hospital beds is going up.
