Nurses are "propping up" the NHS by repeatedly working more hours than contracted and providing last-minute shift cover, a union has claimed.
The Royal College of Nursing (RCN) Scotland said a survey of its members found just only one in 10.
96% reported working in excess of their contracted hours, with 27% saying they did this every shift.
More than a quarter said they provided last-minute cover for absentee staff at least fortnightly.
29% of nurses said they missed their meal time at work at least three times a week.
One in six said they rarely or never took the breaks they were entitled to.
One in five nurses said that in the past six months they had spent a week or more at work despite feeling too ill to be there.
Let hear it for the lazy workers once again!!!
