Five investigations start into North Staffordshire's A&E

FIVE separate investigations have been ordered into North Staffordshire's A&E unit, which is still failing the public despite a multi-million pound cash injection.

The investigations were announced as the centre, at the University Hospital of North Staffordshire, missed its yearly target for the number of patients it sees within a four-hour deadline.

Retired social worker Ann Hollingsworth, aged 69, of Leek, who spent 23 hours in a corridor last month, said: "Instead of all these small reviews we need a radical re-think."

My comment: When management hasn't got a clue what to do they always have an investigation/review so others will tell them what to do. There is only one cure...SACK failing management! Don't effectively promote them by putting them in charge of a watchdog such as the Care Quality Commission, where they can do even more damage!
