Nurses are not allowed to wear jewellery other than a wedding band and stud earrings it's part of the Uniform Policy. 
I thought they weren't allowed to even wear wedding rings?  Maybe that policy has changed though, and quite rightly too, but I still can't understand why a cross worn under their uniform should be banned.  What harm can that possibly cause to anyone?

At least Edinburgh's Royal Infirmary has a large notice on the main door requesting that people who have an infection of any kind shouldn't enter the building, although just how many visitors pay attention to it is another story.  Also I doubt it'll stop out-patients from keeping their appointments, particularly, as I know myself, trying to get another one any time soon is a near impossibility - urgent cases probably being an exception.

The Federer Luvvies really do my nut in. None more so than at the O2 for the ATP Tour finals. Any time he plays Andy its like a home game for Federer. Brits supporting a Swiss player over one of their own. Could just imagine it in reverse. Andy v Roger in Zurich. How many Swiss fans do you think would be supporting Andy over Federer? Zilch. Nadda.
I agree completely about the nauseating Fed luvvies, but fortunately I can't see him ever playing at the O2 again unless he's very lucky.  The funniest thing I ever saw though was at the gold medal final in 2012 - no not the luvvies who had prepared in advance for an assumed Fed win, but the ones in the crowd with their RF tops and hats who were openly chanting GB!

  I wonder how many of his fans will retire from tennis along with him? Quite a few, I should imagine, though Stan will probably inherit the Swiss Guard!

I have always felt the Bradley Effect will play a big role in this election

Advisers to Hillary Clinton are worried that Democratic white men are lying to pollsters and secretly plan to vote for Republican Donald Trump.

"The pattern is in the online surveys, even if you control for demographics, Trump does three to nine points better than in telephone surveys. So it really does suggest that there is a secret vote for Donald Trump," said Lake."

Oh dear - is the writer by any chance a massive Fed fan??

"No, you won't see Federer in a few weeks' time, feet falling along the baseline as softly as a cat's, stalking the elusive singles gold medal in a farewell Olympic performance in Rio. Or later in August, flicking sweet forehands at the National Tennis Center in Flushing in the quest for his sixth US Open title."

The other Fed articles below the top one make for interesting reading as well, so thanks for posting the link.

There's really no reason why Fed shouldn't continue playing because at 35 he won't be the oldest player on the Tour and nor will it be the first time a former #1 has continued playing despite sliding down the rankings.  In fact he might find it more enjoyable, provided he stops putting pressure on himself to win another Slam.

Rachel Hall, author of above, on R4 today  said terrorism is "the art of surprise."  Interesting but really chilling. Sophisticated intelligence gathering is obviously the way forward but really difficult to be one step ahead,  which the French are finding.
Apparently the French media have decided not to give the terrorists so much publicity, won't publish photos etc. Might make some difference, I suppose.
I think most of us have known for years that terrorists depend on the element of surprise to ensure that their attacks are as successful as possible, which is why we're probably safer immediately after an attack then we were before it because terrorists know that security will be considerably stepped up.

Well good for the French media because these evil creatures thrive on publicity, and the more they can get the better in the hope that it'll encourage others who hold a similar belief to do the same.  In fact the warts and all wall to wall coverage that terrorist attacks get in this country, particularly on TV, must be manna to them.

Have you been into hospital recently? Such visiting rules are in place. But where did I say that they were also not helpful? It's about incremental changes and jewellery is an infection control risk.
Not since then, but I would hope that bringing back the 'old' rules applies right across the board and not left up to individual hospitals/health boards to decide whether they should be implement or not.  I'm well aware that rings, including wedding rings, earrings and bracelets are banned, but I still don't see how a necklace worn under a nurse's uniform can pose an infection risk.
