This study has been composed by a student nurse to assess how well the NHS is providing person-centred care to children with autism. This survey will only take a couple of minutes of your time.
Please only fill out this survey based on ONE interaction at an NHS hospital in England and Wales. This interaction must be a visit to hospital in the past year required for your child.
Please only fill out this questionnaire if your child is under the age of 18. Your answers will remain anonymous, the data collected may be published and shared with healthcare professionals. Thank you for taking the time to fill out this survey.
This survey is independent and is not directly linked to the NHS. Thanks for your help in advance!
This survey has now finished – however we have another available here which would be great if you could take part
After having returned from my Christmas break I spent the day washing clothes and reading through my emails. So far so normal.
But while reading the UK’s Nursing Times something struck me. Not the very interesting content on the social model of disability. You can read the pdf here.
If however you go to the web site, however, you will see a lot of adverts for very senior nurses and next to them the salary details. In one case I saw a salary of £21,000 per annum which equates to about $30,000. This for a role which had pretty similar responsibilities for a family doctor and a not dissimilar education. The doctor’s salary would be over five times the amount for , many think, much less work and stress.
So are nurses paid enough? What do you think?
I’d say no they are not but it would be great if you could share your views in the comments section below.
