The NHS is being hampered by an over-complex management structure which is quashing initiative within the service, a delayed government report by the former Marks & Spencer chief Sir Stuart Rose is expected to conclude, according to The Guardian.
“… And we all know who brought in that structure,” tweeted the National Health Action Party yesterday (December 29).
The article states: “Rose is expected to conclude that the NHS is staffed by dedicated employees with a willingness to improve but who are held back by a system that includes poor practices for managing, training and developing people.
“The role of the much criticised regulator the Care Quality Commission is expected to come in for a further beating, the report saying it has contributed to turning the NHS into what he has described as “a multi-headed hydra”.
“It is also expected to criticise the way the federated structure of the NHS allows underperforming managers to move from one hospital to another with little attempt to debar or retrain them.”
