Why do bureaucrats always think they know better than the professionals? SIXTY (yes, 6-0, SIXTY) doctors at the Christie have reservations about these plans. Not one or two or three, but SIXTY. As somebody who has recently undergone surgery at Christie's, and is due to go back for further surgery in the next month, the thought that one day I could be treated at the MRI fills me with horror. The place resembles Baghdad General in comparison to the fantastic service, comfort and care offered by everybody at Christie's. But that doesn't matter to the bureaucrats armed with their strategic framework reviews, Best Value indicators, Government targets and goodness knows what other irrelevant management diktats. All they should be interested in is ensuring Christie's is funded as much as possible - it's as simple as that. Or is that a too obvious policy for a band of mandarins, invariably educated at the University of Central Nowhereshire (formerly Sadshire Poly), with degrees in Business Management but with no discernible idea how to run a hospital in the real world?
