My Lords, I apologise for trying to shout down the right reverend Prelate. Can I ask my noble friend what is being done to encourage nurses who have left for perhaps several years to come back into the profession and do a back-to-nursing course? I myself did so, and there is no reason why nurses in their 40s and 50s should not still give a lot to the profession. They can work part-time or in job shares. I think this way back in is not encouraged enough.
