NHS reforms under fire (again) over redundancy pay

January 29, 2014 9:46 am

The Times (£) has reported that a former deputy Chief Executive at NHS Yorkshire and the Humber Strategic Health Authority, was given a £370,000 redundancy payoff despite never leaving the health service. The Times says is one of three managers paid a total of almost £1m despite still working in the NHS. The names appear on a revised list of 36 health leaders paid £10.2m when made redundant as part of the abolition of 161 organisations under the Government’s NHS reforms.

Olly from PSI: The embarrassing headlines relating to the Coalition’s controversial NHS reforms keep on emerging, with this the latest of report of a “redundancy that never was”. Such stories are particularly damaging, given one of the main arguments used to justify the NHS reforms was to reduce the number of managers and cut down the proportion of the budget spent on bureaucracy.
