I AM appalled to read that staff cutting is to take place at the County Hospital.

My mother-in-law was recently admitted recently and it was obvious the nurses were extremely pressurised. Their work was made worse by the constant bed moving when they were trying to care for their patients. Many elderly, sick patients were obviously very upset by the upheavals. I would like to add that to suggest experienced nurses leave is ludicrous. Who are the new nurses going to learn from? Human resources need to retain staff not suggest they leave. Appalling management!
