Royal College of Nursing brands reforms as 'stupid'
Nurses' leaders have branded parts of the government's plans to reform the profession as "stupid".

The strongest criticism was given to the plan to get trainee nurses to work for a year as healthcare assistants.

A total of 71% said they were not confident that staffing levels were always adequate, with more than a third saying they were unsafe on a weekly basis.
