Lack of accountability for managers and executives in NHS, Lynn News letters
This time it’s Jon Green who was the chief executive. He’s packed his bags and abandoned the hospital to move down the roads to a ‘secondment post’ with the Norfolk and Norwich.
The health trust “gravy train” is a very busy little railway line picking up and dropping off an endless series of managers and executives at the numerous trusts across the country and allowing them all to ride away when the heat in the kitchen becomes too great.
It seems there is no personal accountability for these people and the tremendous damage they appear to be inflicting upon the health infrastructure and their standard reward is a cracking pension scheme and another eye-watering salary at their new posts.
If it wasn’t so serious it would be laughable at the way this little network of professional itinerant executives draw large salaries for a few years while plainly failing at the post and then secure a new job elsewhere to repeat the scenario. With a track record of routine dramatic failure and financial meltdowns I’m surprised the job opportunities keep arising, but it seems they do. Can someone please explain to a simple soul like me exactly why these supposedly top hospital managers continue to hold down these important roles when the evidence on the ground suggests they should seek employment where they can’t wreak such havoc and appear to have no personal accountability to us, the subjects of their ineptitude.
