Harding shows just how out of touch she is with frontline workers. The NHS is already short of 84,000 full-time staff. Of the 1.28 million staff we do have, 170,000 are not British.
As we haemorrhage staff because of burnout, we need the next leader of the NHS to be someone who understands that it relies on its workforce — and this is what needs to be invested in, no matter the nationality.
