NHS Staff 'Deserve More Respect'

NHS Staff 'Deserve More Respect'

7:09am 26th January 2010

The man who represents Buckinghamshire NHS workers has praised staff for the falling number of cases of C-difficile.

Across all Bucks hospitals (between April and December) there was 100 cases 2 years ago, last year there were 30.

Steve Bell, the Secretary of the Bucks Health branch of Unison says staff work hard and often for very low wages.

Today the bosses of Buckinghamshire hospitals will pay tribute to staff who worked double time and slept on hospital wards during the snow to keep services running.

Across the UK some hospitals declared major emergencies because of a lack of beds and staff.
