It mentions that these structures are fundamental to the integrity of today's nursing and midwifery; QNU sensed that these structures could come under fire. QNU Council therefore commissioned a research project on the impact the job and service cuts were having on these structures; QNU members whole-heartedly supported these clear governing structures.
