Christina Patterson explores why nursing sometimes goes wrong, and investigates what can be done to put it right.
After she herself experienced nursing at its worst, in 2011 Christina spoke out in a Radio 4 Four Thought talk. In this programme she follows up, investigating the extent of poor nursing, asking why it happens so often, and getting to the bottom of what can be done to improve it.
As she speaks to her fellow patients, healthcare experts, politicians, and doctors, nurses and managers across the NHS, Christina hears about everything from faulty training programmes to inadequate regulatory regimes. But could the solution be something simpler to describe and much harder to deliver?
