'Cure the NHS with far fewer managers'

Super manager Gerry Robinson thinks that we have too many mangers leaching off of the NHS. He highlights the following facts:

There are 39,900 are managers in the NHS.

There are 34,900 Consultant doctors in the NHS

That means there are now 5,000 more people employed to shuffle papers and carry clipboards than there are treating sick patients.

Not only that but the costs of these Jobsworths is increasing year on year while front line health care staff cut.

'Incomes Data Services show that chief executives of NHS foundation trusts now earn an average of £158,000. Across the board at executive level within the NHS, salaries rose by 7.6 per cent in foundation trusts, and 5.7 per cent in non-foundation bodies.'
