Everybody is in favour of the nurses. Before, during, and after the nurses’ strike last Wednesday, it was obvious that there was huge public support for their cause. Whether that support is based entirely on emotion or grounded in reason is a moot point.
How could anybody not be in favour of the nurses? The randomness of life, and inevitability of decline and death, means that most of us have needed their help at a vulnerable time.
One always holds a special place in the memory for those who recognise vulnerability and who offer comfort. And that’s completely apart from the professionalism of the nurses.
