It's all about good management skills able to adapt and allow flexibility in hours worked, ie, want to come back to work with NHS Scotland but would need to be able to work part-time but not spread my hours over 5/7 days.

Support staff. Stop the ‘one rule for one and one rule for another’. Stop the ‘it isn’t what you know it’s who you know’. Listen to their staff make changes by listening to the ones on the shop floor doing the jobs day in day out. Managers need to get out of the offices and help when short staffed.

Support all NHS workers clinical/nun-clinical, stop the power driven managers who have no idea what they are doing other than making profit out of the venerable workers who leave their own families to care for our society. Healthcare assistant need more support, as their wages make it hard to afford good quality childcare.

Scrab long hours duties i.e Long day. Let Staff do 8hrs duty go home rest and be fit for the next day duty. The long days is affecting staff effectiveness on duty. This is why some nursing/care staff are agressive to their patients. This also woll eventually affect the staff's family, friends e.t.c.
Stop long duties and gove pay rise.

All trusts have been pared back to the bone so staff are constantly having to work even harder to cover sickness and leave. Staff are demotivated as managers are terrified of getting complaints from patients who take their anger and frustration out on frontline staff, managers reprimand staff if patients complain because it's easier than defending hardworking, put upon staff. Pay is rubbish! You are working in a bullying culture where everyone is just trying to pass the buck because everyone is doing too much!

To prevent people leaving I'd cut the top salaries drastically and number of chiefs, and increase the salaries of the people doing the care ie trannies doctors nurses and support workers ward clerks etc . train nurses on the job, bring back enrolled nurses, bring back matrons, get qualified staff on the wards instead of sitting at computers/attending meetings/management courses and recruit English speaking local staff. In other words, go back to what things used to be when we didn't have many problems.
