Not only are nurses twice as likely to suffer financial hardship, but they are three times more likely to face domestic abuse than the public.
Our recent research has uncovered these worrying facts
Nurses are nearly twice as likely as the average person to be unable to afford basic necessities like beds, washing machines and keeping their homes warm
Two in five nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants have a long-term physical or mental illness that limits their day-to-day activity
Nurses are 3 times more likely to have experienced domestic abuse in the last year
This is appalling, and we’re taking action.
