Health Minister slams compensation for NHS Managers

It’s been revealed that NHS managers from the East of England who lost their jobs when the health service was reorganised have received millions of pounds in compensation. At least 15 local NHS managers each received payoffs of more than £100,000 in that reshuffle. In total around £3m was paid out by local health authorities. Health Minister Dr Dan Poulter described the payouts as “a waste of taxpayers money… that should have been spent on patients”.
