New Chairman

I have, in an earlier post mentioned the fantastic sums of money being spent by the NHS on management consultants , an estimated £400 million last year alone, and £213,000 in just nine months at Bedford Hospital; and this is all money that could have been spent on patient care.

Now the take-over of the system by management consultants seems almost complete, or at least in Bedford, where our new Trust chairman, Ray Rankmore, is himself a management consultant.

Actually I am pleased that Ray has taken up the post; he is a man who likes to talk to people, and who likes to listen, and he has a track record of success in business. I genuinely wish him well.
