In a huge victory for nurses and patients across Wales, Kirsty’s ‘More Nurses’ campaign was passed unanimously in the Welsh Assembly.
Her bill will facilitate an increase in nurses in our hospital wards, raising the quality of care by reducing the amount of patients each nurse has to care for.
Across the whole United Kingdom, it is Wales where nurses are most overstretched, dealing more patients per nurse than anywhere else.
The bill has the interests of nurses at its heart; it was created with the needs of nurses in mind and is backed by the Royal College of Nursing in Wales.
Kirsty’s success is a much needed good news story for the Welsh NHS, and will improve the quality of healthcare across Wales.
