In May 2020 I wrote an open letter appealing to the governments of the world to act quickly to deliver PPE to nurses who were lacking the necessary equipment to work safely during the pandemic.
One year after the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s time to look back and acknowledge that serious changes need to happen at a political level to ensure that nurses and other healthcare professionals receive the support they need. Never again should we have to endure the often avoidable hardships that we experienced in the last 12 months.
I have written a new open letter calling for politicians throughout the world to closely examine their health systems and take action to protect the physical and mental health of their workers. Our profession is in danger and needs help!
You can help by sending this letter to your local and national politicians. If we work together, we can force a change!
