The whole system needs a shakeup. This crap is actively going on in our health system.

Just our health system? No - our whole governance. That's why they're trying so hard to keep the lid on the can of worms and failing so far. At our expense I might add.

Are they trying to keep a lid on it or are they just arrogant and completely incompetent? It’s getting painful to watch now. The penny should have dropped ages ago. You’re fucked just pay up, apologize, and write it off. By fighting it very badly they’ve actually made it all 10 x worse for themselves now by exposing all sorts of other things that have now been dragged into subsequent hearings.

Cannan has promised a review, can we expect him to go in with a big stick like we would want him too?

Oct, I believe is his promise of a change or at least his review leading to a change. Does the current shenanigans make it harder or easier for Cannan to address the underlying mistrust of the CS or drag it out beyond his original solution date???

Is there actually a shortage or are they just searching for the cheapest?

Some of my repeat medications seem to change manufacturer each prescription and some of the products seem to be much more cheaply packaged, (a good thing), or the inhalers don't have counters on, (a bad thing).

Brexit apparently

I believe its a shortage and they are shopping round to try and  fulfill prescriptions . Thats what they indicated to me anyhow. . 

Back to the subject of Pharmacy problems. Lloyds, Onchan Precinct are implementing a new IT system and seem to be really struggling with backlogs of scripts etc. They also seem to be encountering shortages of various medications. I would surmise that they are issuing medications which reduces their stock levels and that these stocks are not being replenished as normal because they are not updating the dispensing system.  Something is not working……

Yes more of the joys of the Brexit that was so honestly sold to the UK public. It feels like this winter we’ll be right back to the winter of discontent with 40 years of being a mainstream international country totally erased.

How to solve the cockroach problem?

Rick & Morty Season 2 Episode 9 springs to mind as a temporary fix.

When the cockroaches scurry away into the dark after their misdeeds/incompetence, there need to be real consequences to the cockroaches. No gold pension for incompetence. Perhaps jail for some.

Any new intake of cockroaches should need to pass a competence test before they can do any damage. New work contracts needed, civil servants and mhk.

This has gone on for decades and will not fix itself from within. A cockroach eradication system is needed for when they do their damage, early on preferably.

How to do it?

 I was just gobsmacked that such an important appointment was viewed as being perfectly able to be performed remotely, particularly at that time. 

How would she get a feel for the place, people and importantly the people she was leading, how would the 'water cooler' chats happen and how could she be an effective leader when most of her next in command would have to book a Teams call with her?

TBH, that has been the root cause of this costly fiasco, in my opinion.  Once wedded to an ill advised appointment, very hard to undo it. 

This was exactly what a lot of us on here were saying when we found out that the position was non-resident. Ashford's gob has backed him into a corner from which he's going to find hard to get out of.

Project Manager, my arse!

The real and original Walter Mitty.

Current minister also supports the idea of an off island ceo despite clear evidence of its flaws. There was a long twitter thread on it a few months back where hooper said its no problem and 50 people told him it was a problem but he is so up himself he couldn't understand why.

To be fair 50 people telling him anything on twitter is hardly a sound basis for decision making.

fixed

The “fixed” version above sums up IOMG support for Manx Care when they all voted for it as a done deal (without fully understanding all the implications, financial and managerial) - in a nutshell: if anything goes wrong, MC are the sharp end operators and the minister can say “not me, guv”; if anything goes right, DHSC can claim the win.

Too cynical?

I hate to give away my secrets, but switch your repeat prescriptions to karsons.  No such issues there.
