Thats the problem- if your a nurse there is the NHS and a few private hospitals, and i bet there isn't that many jobs in them,where else can a fully trained staff nurse go?? Its not like a job like IT where there are thousands of companies you can apply to, the NHS is like a monopoly on heathcare.
The goverment knows that they can turn the screw on them as most of them have no-where else to go!
