There are currently 43,500 nursing vacancies in the NHS in England.
I've only posted this for personal amusement to read the Tory apologists' excuses and how it is the fault of parties who have not been in power for nine years.

Have you applied? Why not?

Nursing numbers haven’t actually shrunk (they have increased by 1% per annum since 2009 and obviously haven’t kept up with demand) but in the same period, Paramedics have increased by 46%. Anyone know why?

It is only about demand. What has the Tory government done in the last nine years to incentivise people to join the NHS as nurses? The vacancies have not appeared overnight?

Nancy - that is your most ridiculous post so far on Lewes forum, and that is saying something.

For five of those years the Lib Dems were enthusiastically propping up the Tories. They'd like us to forget that but we haven't.

Nancy - I have never wanted to be a nurse. So I have never applied. Any more ridiculous questions?

I don't suppose you want to be a care worker or a lorry driver or even a cold caller either, there is a shortage of all of them. Perhaps that's the fault of the Tories too.

Nancy - I know it's quite hard to say clever things if your Tory Overlords haven't been chanting it daily for you. But please try and think before you write such garbage. It will make for a more meaningful discussion and you may even find you have some of your own opinions.

You have to do a degree for which there is no longer a bursary for, to earn a pittance working long hours in a system being eroded by successive governments. Politically driven pay freezes are the norm. Why *would* you do that job?
