‘It’s like being in a warzone’ – A&E nurses open up about the emotional cost of working on the NHS frontline14 min read
Nurses describe what it is like to work on the NHS frontline – and what the cost is to them.
Ambulance services are facing unfair criticism for a situation which is not of their making. The workforce is in crisis, with system-wide pressures seriously hampering their ability to do their jobs.
