Nurse employers urged to be ‘flexible’ with staff this winter

Nurse employers have been urged to be “flexible” with staff working during challenging and changing winter pressures.

In a letter to nurses, the nurse regulator highlights that staff will face prolonged personal and professional pressure due to additional demand, resulting in the need to depart from established procedures.

The regulator says that any referrals will take into account local realities and the need to adapt practice, as well as all relevant resources, guidelines or protocols.

In a message to care teams, the Nursing and Midwifery Council says: “We all need to support one another during this time. As part of a team, we recognise the impact of coping in challenging circumstances, providing support and advice as it’s needed. Asking for help from others when you need it is good professional practice.”

The NMC also thanks registrants for their continued professionalism and hard work.
