Beyond a joke

What do you do if your hospital is £12million in debt and cannot afford to replace vital clinical staff?

Well, if you're Bedford Hospital you have yet another management reorganization and create even more management posts - a "director of corporate support services" (whatever that may be) and a "chief information officer".

Perhaps one day the penny will drop that hospitals exist to treat patients; you can rearrange the paperclips as often as you like, but without doctors and nurses in post hospitals simply don't function.
