ABSTRACT
The article discusses a survey which revealed inequalities in employment conditions and professional development resources for nurses working in general practice in Great Britain. A significant number of nurses reported that they felt they were carrying out tasks they had not been trained to perform. Most respondents (87%) were involved in women's health and had the cervical cytology certificate, but only half (51%) had the family planning certificate.
