North Cumbria's hospitals bailed out - with £19m taxpayers' cash

North Cumbria’s hospitals will break even this financial year – but only thanks to a £18.7m bail out.

Have your say

When an accountant leaves are they replaced immediately yet when a nurse or medical secretary leaves their job has to be reviewed by a panel that only meets monthly and will only consider a certain number of posts at each sitting. Consequently these posts can go unadvertised for weeks or months and unfilled for longer still.

It's a sad state of affairs when an accountancy post is filled with more urgency than a clinical post in a hospital.

I agree with Me. The management ploy here is to put all risk on the front line staff. They expect them to manage with far fewer nurses working much harder looking after more and more patients. They expect the medical staff to save money by discharging patients quicker. When there is an error or mistake, it's that nurses or Doctor's fault not the "Trust".

This article is sickening to read. The NHS is not a business, and should not be treated as such. Im happy, in fact I want, to see the taxes I pay spent on patient care. Perhaps the NHS could save a bit of money by not employing the likes of Mr Mulvey and the various tiers of management on over inflated saleries.
It sickens me to the core to see the pressure piled upon those at coal face of the NHS, the doctors and nurses.

As Mr Mulvey does not work on the shop floor how can he say patient care is not compromised!! Patient care is indeed compromised 24hrs a day, and has been for months! The nurses, imparticular those on the EAU deparment are stretched beyond all limits. As a nurse working in the CIC i fear for my registration everyday that i am at work. My work load is ridiculous.
