Agency staff are costing around 5 billion and rising.
Far too many managers whose salaries are very nice indeed.
Jobs for the boys/girls,not what you know it's who you know.
The CEO of Stafford trust quit her role only to sidestep into another made up role within the same trust and the same salary of over 200k per year.
I get all that, even though they sound like issues of mismanagement rather than the kind of demands that leeblue was referring to. What I'm curious about is how an increase to the population of more than 2.5 million people is apparently not a factor in the latest "crisis".
