Letter: NHS reforms
Monday 26 April 1999
One of the objectives is to make it easier for the disabled to return to the workplace.
It would seem that this sedentary role is ideally suited to the needs of disabled and work-injured nurses.
The employment of the disadvantaged in these specialist jobs would allow them to continue to use their knowledge, plus earn their living, freed from the wastefulness of being unemployed and at the same time no longer a burden on the state.
The employment of disabled nurses would release their able-bodied colleagues from the 'phone lines to return to the bedside.
