New years resolutions. Give up smoking. Lose weight. Blah Blah.
However for some it time to start trying to polish a turd. You see St Georges Hospital NHS Trust are looking for a new Chairman. https://www.gatenbysanderson.com/job/chair-at-st-george-s-university-hospitals-nhs-foundation-trust-in-london.5526
The job description is full of vague crap and clearly not designed to attract the leader that this disgrace to South London desperately needs.
From the Job description
“Our interim chair will be stepping down in Spring 2017, and we are seeking a Chair with a depth of leadership experience to work with our Board, Foundation Trust Governors, staff and key stakeholders to help drive our improvement programme. This is a significant role which requires an exceptional individual with a track record of working through others and across organisational boundaries to achieve results at pace. To succeed, you will need strategic perspective, sound judgement and a firm commitment to improving public services, complemented by resilience, tenacity and a collegiate approach. “
Er. Nah. This is naff. Let me rewrite this for you St Georges.
Urgently required. No Shit Sherlock for failing piece of shit NHS Trust in South West London. Needs to know how to swiftly sack 8000+ incompetent staff who clearly jumped into the gene pool when the lifeguard was not looking and ensure that these staff do not re-enter the labour market whatsoever, then refill all 8000 + positions. Next rebuild trust with the huge public you have failed to do the civic duty for over so many years. Remember St Georges – your strap line is “risking lives every day”. Thirdly get rid of trust wide medical negligence and incompetence. Forth. Get rid of administrators who do nothing but talk about last nights telly all day long.
Now I could quite easily deliver my version of the job description. The reason I am not applying is because I am not qualified in the politically correct sense of the word to deliver the turd polishing that their own job description requires.
St Georges managed to lose an interim CEO after 2 weeks earlier this year!
You see when you have a crock of shite like St Georges one cannot simply get the Fabreeze or the pledge out.
One simply cannot polish a turd. Whole scale change does not come about from being politically correct. You do not correct medical incompetence and idiotic staff by taking a collegiate approach.
So anyway here we have it For St Georges for the time being. 2017 brings turd polishing and continuing to risk lives every day. One thing I know for sure is that this appointment will not bring around the drastic change in healthcare that the population of South West London desperately deserve or need.
