HEALTH: What will become of the managers?

Have your say

I see from the local press that the Pilgrim Hospital is now in “special measures” – I take this to mean in intensive care.

Can anybody tell me what is going to happen to the management team that allowed the situation to become so dire?

Will they face instant dismissal, loss of their pension pots, barred from holding posts in the public sector or any other sanction?

I think not. I suspect that they will simply be moved sideways into another lucrative position.

It must be wonderful to work in a world where nothing succeeds like failure.

Is it any wonder that the NHS is billions in debt and local healthcare so dismal?
