Scandal as thousands of UNQUALIFIED staff in hospitals are found to be working as nurses leaving patients at risk, experts warn

Unqualified care assistants are practising in the NHS with job titles that describe them as nurses with advanced skills, experts have revealed.

A new study found that thousands of nursing jobs across the health service have titles that have little or no link to a nurse’s education or level of experience.

Researchers said people are also working with these titles without being registered with the regulator, the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).

In many cases, NHS trusts or staff themselves create their own job titles.
