seems there is still a transformation director according to the ad wording. 

They've obviously changed it in some places but not others:

Quote

We are looking for two Health and Care Transformation Executives to join our newly created team. This is an exciting opportunity to be a part of this small, dedicated team that is tasked with supporting the Health and Care Transformation Lead, Chief Secretary and Ministers. 

[...] Initially, there will be an opportunity to assist with the early stage set-up of the transformation programme. Once it is established, you will assist the Health and Care Transformation Manager with the overall monitoring of the workstreams to ensure that they are progressing as required in order to deliver on their set objectives. 

[...] As a Health and Care Transformation Executive, you will be part of a dedicated team tasked with supporting the Chief Secretary, Health and Care Transformation Director and Ministers who are ultimately accountable for the high profile, fundamental transformation of the health and care system on the Island. 

It's a very typical mess - they can't even decide what the boss is called (or what they do) but they think they are up to the job of 'transforming' something as complex as a health service.  Note that none of these jobs require any knowledge of healthcare at all - just the ability to produce reams of bullshit so it looks as if you are doing something.

Thinking about Quayle, I wonder if  there's something else going on.  He's someone who has done very nicely for himself, going through life doing what he's told.  He's very happy to settle into the li

Correct. The GMC also has powers to suspend a doctor from the register and therefore stop them from working until a final decision can be made. The fact that they haven't chosen to, tells me that their risk assessment must have concluded that this doctor's continued practice poses a low risk to patients

In this case it's presumably because there's not a pattern of behaviour - there's only one patient involved and it's not alleged that is ongoing.  But they are serious allegations (I don't even know if they are factually disputed) and many health authorities would suspend someone in such cases automatically.  Particularly as it also alleged that there is misuse of position in terms of record keeping etc.

On the contrary, the days of 'automatic suspension' are long gone (thank goodness!). There tends to be a formal risk assessment undertaken, often in conjunction with the PPA (formerly NCAS) and (usually) a sensible decision is arrived at.

That's why it's heading South..... same direction as the Prom, figuratively speaking.

This administration, under the present leadership is rudderless and almost toothless. It's making no apparent attempt whatsoever to reign in the executive mismanagement, screw ups and largess.

I hear that’s because there will be an internal shuffle and someone internal will take that role. Only a rumour though

If the rumour proves to be correct, I’ll be fascinated to see who it is within the Cabinet Office that measures up to all that is required of the Transformation Director when, as recently as October, we had to recruit an NHS guru, this being absolutely essential for the role.

Roger - you’re taking your life in your hands assuming poor wording/lack of attention to detail and that the Health and Care Transformation Lead, H&C Transformation Manager and H&C Transformation Director are one and the same...they are possibly 3 posts!!

I will challenge that on the grounds of the doctor / patient relationship.

Recently there has been a scandal of unnecessary mastectomy operations taking place mainly because patients trust their doctors and go with their advice.

OK, they're allegations and not proven facts.

But would you trust this doctor in the meantime...?

I would, if the GMC is allowing his continued practice

 

Well, that's one.....

This is a serious issue and It has been referred to the GMC and onwards to “Fitness to Practice”

They have extensive  expertise.

It takes a while .

Leave it with them.

Complaints can be vexatious.
 

There’s Mr Duffy, consultant urologist at Nobles. Whistleblower at Morecambe Bay University Hospital Trust. 
 

Another allegation to GMC, by those he whistle blew, about divvying out holidays at Pizza parties, racism and drugs, at Lancaster and Barrow Hospitals..

He hasn’t been suspended here.

Does the clinical director mental health actually see patients at present, or just run the department? ( I don’t know )

But if he doesn’t, and there is a risk based system, that may explain. Not that the risk based system worked properly for the consultant endocrinologist. DHSC got slated over their heavy handed suspension, overturned by the court. Maybe they’re more cautious now.

Yes he does see patients and has told his colleagues ‘there’s nothing to see here’ ‘ it’s all been sorted out’

Because, if Byrne is claiming that, it's not true.  It hasn't all been sorted out - after a fortnight's hearing it was adjourned as 'part heard', but there have been no further hearings.  Presumably if there was nothing in it, the case would have been over and dismissed in that fortnight.  That doesn't mean that  it will be found necessary to take action against Byrne, but it does suggest there is evidence to consider.  And the case still hasn't been resolved and is shown as ongoing.

There's something very unusual going on here, which you can tell just by looking at the way the GMC tribunals system normally works.

Fortunately, I would prefer solid evidence other than somebody with a known "axe to grind" comments
