NHS nursing crisis: Lili is from Romania & works at GWH - but the flow of EU nurses has now dried up

There was a bit of noise during the election campaign around the government's latest move in the continual and discreet reorganisation of the NHS - the STPs aka Sustainability and Transformation Plans.  This noise of protest centred on rumours of cuts some STPs are going to make.

This kind of noise will get very loud indeed as the plans of some of England's 44 STPs focus on money saving closures of services and buildings - all in the name of sustainability with reduced funding.  But in case we got frightened by 'plans', the STPs have had their 'P' changed to the cosier and much more user friendly 'Partnership'.
