The nursing jobs web site,, web site has reported that 66% of UK nurses disagreed with the Government’s proposed individual insurance scheme that placed liability with the individual.

Under the scheme, now withdrawn following criticism, each nurse would have been expected to buy their own insurance annually at a cost of approximately £500 per annum.

The RCN disagreed with the proposal, suggesting that business would become more heavily involved in healthcare provision as responsibility shifted from employers of nurses to insurance companies.

However, the results may indicate that there is some sympathy with the proposal and that while the proposal has been withdrawn pending a review in conjunction with the RCN, it could be eventually be supported by UK Nurses.
