We start with a problem from Kate, a newly qualified nurse from Essex:
"I work on a really busy ward and I never seem to leave on time or get my breaks and I'm starting to feel really tired and fed up. I don't know how to tell my ward sister how I feel as I'm new and I don't want to get into trouble. Can you give me some advice on how to talk to her?"
