Rotherham Hospital Blows £110K+ A Month On 4 Consultants

Recommended Posts

A debt-ridden hospital trust that plans to axe 750 jobs is spending more than £25,000 a month on an American IT expert.

Rotherham Hospital Trust paid around £40 million for a computer system that has never worked.

..

The failing IT system caused chaos when it 'lost' 5,000 outpatient appointments in a 'black hole' which cost the hospital £1.6 million and had patients turning up at the wrong times for appointments that doctors knew nothing about.

..

The hospital trust has also admitted that three other consultants - Michael Morgan, the trust's interim chief executive, barrister and accountant Tim Bolot, who is leading the financial recovery, and Joshua Ejdelbaum in a supporting role - are costing £92,400 a month including VAT.

So they need to save £5m this year...

managers, so skilled and valuable, that they cant do the job of making savings.

Course, Empire building was the remit of the past.

I know someone who works there. They have serious difficulties getting enough staff to properly cover their wards, especially on night shifts. Often understaffed and patients suffer. It's a disaster waiting to happen, but when it does you can bet your life (or the life of a loved one should they wind up there) that some front line grunts will catch it in the neck, not these guys with their snouts so deeply buried in the trough.

They also had a £2m entrance atrium built a couple of years ago. The CEO who was in charge of the trust at the time took super dooper early retirement. His successors are carrying on the good works...

I know of a number of Trusts paying a consulting company to implement this load of **** for them

Thinking of doing a Freedom of Information request to our local Trust to find out how much NHS money they are paying/wasting on the company optimise.co.uk for this

Christ. What a pile of ********.

Holy shit.

As far as the Rotherham lot are concerned, galling as it is, they may represent good value for money. I'm fairly sure the 40 million quid IT project won't.
