Allow staff to work the hours that fit their life. People generally work to live not live to work. Stop expecting people to work extra for nothing by calling it 'going above and beyond' - that's manager talk for fleecing your staff and getting them to work extra for nothing (some of us still remember Whitley contracts and getting paid overtime rates!!) Us dinosaurs realise agenda for change robbed us and yet we still are made to feel grateful we have a job!!
Let people work permanent days or nights if they want instead of 'internal shift rotation' , give staff the option to work term time only.
Understand we aren't interested in cutting corners to save money, patient care is priority.
Understand we have lives, and our families come first.

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.
