    Out of order the remark re nurses putting there feet up on nights.
    I didn't realise that Whoosh-itis was so contagious!

    It's amazing anyone took the nightshift nurses post at face value.

    I used to do 24hr shifts and it was a killer. I'd fall into bed after being awake for at least 26hrs, sleep for at least 10 then wake up 8hrs before the next next shift meaning I'd have to go at least 33hrs before seeing my bed again.

    What did you do on your shifts? One thing is for sure, they never got the best out of you for the duration of your shift.

    I was a Paramedic and have to agree with you about not getting the best out of their employees, I'd go further and say it was downright dangerous. The constant fatigue was not only a personal health hazard but also a hazard to patients whose lives were literally in our hands. Add to that our drivers who were driving in a highly hazardous environment after being on duty for almost 3 times the legal limit associated with other driving jobs. I loved the job and it was a difficult decision to give it up but I'm now so glad I did. There's not many old men in that line of work over here.

    A loophole in EU work regulations allowed government employees to work way beyond that what was allowed for other workers. I believe the same loophole was used to extend the duty times of junior doctors in the NHS.

    Wow, that was some shift for such a demanding job, hats off to you.
