It was certainly an eye opener into how the major incident process swung into action and the dedication and professionalism of all of the staff.
Last nights was very interesting too and as well as brilliant surgery showed the way that the Trust used their private patients floor for income generation.
My Trust where I'm a Governor has also done the same, built a small pp Unit and all of the money flows back to us and not to shareholders. Trying to balance the books and make constant savings/cost cutting is a perpetual headache, would love to see one Mr J Hunt trying to do it!!!

Perhaps 48 hours early  - or 4 months late!!

But we really have been incredibly busy - and have managed to reply to our emails; register 28 new members; and even add a few new badges to the gallery. We have also had to move several thousand emails. Adrian, our technical Administrator did most of that work plus saved us much time by adding a security program which is now saving much time. Onward...

All the links are there and hopefully working correctly - if they don't *please refresh your bowser before giving up - it often works!!

Any errors are all mine, but please do tell me if you find any - nicely please..... Applause - yes please..!. Me? I just hope you find the effort worthy!

Very best for now, Enjoy,

Very well put Peter. I often wonder what collectors intend to do with their collections and this may not be just badges. It would be interesting to hear from the membership what they are going to do with their collections as you say we are all only temporary custodians.

Yes, but this must be one of the few places that can help find much wanted items Peter. A real service....

NOTE TO YOUNGER SELF (from older and possibly wiser self); When starting to collect nursing badges
1.Try not to let your heart rule your head when bidding on an item.Easier said than done but you may end up spending a lot of your collecting budget on an item which crops up next week at half the price.
 2. Try and avoid personal rivalry with other collectors where possible.If you can try and reach a compromise on areas of interest so you both win now and again ,it may be better in the long term.
3.Don't buy with an eye to investment.Never pay more than you can afford.An item is only worth what someone else is prepared to pay and you may get a shock when you eventually sell.
4. We are temporary custodians of the badges in our collections .Try to honour and enjoy them but also consider what you may eventually like to do with them?
5.It is ,at the end of the day,only a badge .There is more important stuff in life,enjoy !
