According to The Guardian, the nurse was frustrated with how the government treated its healthcare workers during the pandemic.
The situation in the United Kingdom has improved significantly over the past few weeks due to the rapid vaccination program in place across the country. But Jenny McGee, a nurse from New Zealand, paints another picture of how world caregivers were treated during the epidemic.
Johnson has isolated two nurses, including McGee, for their instrumental role in his recovery. After recovering, he declared the NHS responsible for saving his life.
However, things got worse when McGee recently criticized the government for not doing enough to protect its health care workers, The Guardian reported on Tuesday. “We are not getting respect and pay what we deserve now. I’m tired of it. So I handed over my resignation,” The Guardian quoted her as saying during the filming of the Channel 4 TV documentary, which will air on May 24.
Johnson thanked McGee and her colleague for being by his side at St Thomas Hospital in London. “Things could have happened in any way,” he said.
The government has faced criticism for its recent proposal to increase THE wages of NHS staff by 1 percent. Many critics of the government have called the hike an insult to frontline workers. “Many nurses felt that the government was not led very effectively – indecisiveness, very mixed messages. It was very disturbing,” Reuters quoted McGee as saying about the government’s response.
