Quotes

Mr Hunt said: "The NHS stands for compassionate care or it stands for nothing — and we know that for many patients, compassionate nursing makes all the difference."
The NMC’s Janice Burgess said: "A concern was raised in relation to the registrant's conduct in that an incident occurred on the ward on April 22, 2011 where a member of staff, Nurse X, reported that she had been assaulted by a patient."
The panel concluded: "Although the amount of money taken was relatively small, Mr Clarkson was a senior nurse and he breached the trust of his employer, his colleagues, the service users and the public."
"And if Allah touches thee with affliction, none can remove it but He: But if He bestows upon you a favour, remember that He is the Possessor of every power to do all that He wills."
