    Default Sick of this job

    Over 45,000 NHS staff call in sick every day, which is lowering standards of patient care, according to the first national NHS Health and Wellbeing Review into staff habits.



    Replace with contractors. Simples.
    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable.

    I´m amazed it isn´t more seeing as they spend every day in a mucky NHS hospital surrounded by sick people.

    What happens where your sick pay policy is - you get paid anyway regardless of how many days sick you are a year.

    I really do think that this was an unfair report.

    1) Most NHS staff works shifts (and pretty tulipy ones at that). A valid comparison with "other workers" would only be obtained by comparing with other shift workers. I bet they don't come out anywhere near as bad on that criteria (shift workers are notorious for "phoning in sick").

    2) How often do people go into work because "they only have a cold" and thought that they should come in. Do you think that a nurse dealing with ill people should turn up for work "with a cold", I sure as hell don't!
