LONDON June 8: Health Secretary Sajid Javid has ordered the biggest shake up of NHS management in a generation after a major review led by a former military chief found leadership in the health service was ‘institutionally inadequate’.
The health secretary, who has vowed to stamp out ‘waste or wokery’ in the NHS and social care, has accepted the recommendations of the report led by General Sir Gordon Messenger in full, Daily Mail reported.
Sir Gordon, who led the Royal Marines’ invasion of Iraq, met over a thousand health service workers as part of a review into how the health service and social care sector is managed.
The Messenger Report found ‘evidence of poor behaviours and attitudes such as discrimination, bullying and blame cultures’ in certain parts of the NHS and social care system that has left some staff ‘not feeling comfortable to speak up’.
A ‘lack of equal opportunities’ among managers to access training to progress their careers means staff with networks or contacts are ‘more likely to access these opportunities’, the report said.
It also noted that ‘strengthening leadership and embedding the best examples of management is vital in ensuring every pound of investment is well spent’.
