44. The November dates may provide an opportunity for further clarification of the points made by Mr Ashford or indeed an opportunity for him to attend to explain and be questioned.

Hahaha. Not a chance.

But if he doesn't appear it's going to be even more embarrassing isn't it?  He's going round shouting "I demand you clear my name!"  "You'll want to give evidence to do so then" "Er ...um... well maybe not".

He won't appear because, in his mind, he has done nothing wrong. We can draw many conclusions, but he is not going to put himself under scrutiny.

And I would add, the AG is going to offer up a sacrifical lamb.  I wonder who guided her?

I don't think any of these things are just being discovered now or that Manx Care and Cope were unaware of them.  Centralised recruitment via the Cabinet Office's HR Department was never going to work when most of those who Manx Care wants are specialists: doctors, nurses, technicians and so on. 
 

 They're trialling the new system in orthopaedics, so if @wrighty suddenly finds no one at all turns up, we'll know they achieved the impossible task of making things worse.

Ever since we lost the medical staffing office at Noble’s (can’t remember exactly when, over 10 years ago I think) we’ve been calling for its return. Centralised HR just doesn’t work very well in healthcare. I’ve long thought that one of the ways of improving recruitment, retention, and more importantly the cultural problems in health would be to have a dedicated Manx Care HR department with proper transparent procedures with regard to recruitment, post creation, discipline, absence management etc

As for the new system in orthopaedics - this is the first I’ve heard of it. From what I can gather it’s going to be something along the lines of not booking appointments far in advance for them to be cancelled and changed repeatedly, leading to DNAs, or the opposite ABSHs (Attended But Shouldn’t Have). Again, we’ve been suggesting this for years, but have been told it wasn’t possible. I hope it comes off.

Ah so the reason the AG is no longer involved becomes clear. The alleged rot really does run through every vein of government.

The closing comments about the perceived impact on her future career are quite brutal.

I think he will use the same excuse as  before. The point by point rebuttal was superfluous after he went in front of the Public Accounts Committee, this time he refer them to his Paul Moulton interview.

They have a director of OHR in Manx care

It was obvious that they were conflicted and that’s why the defense team had to change. The summary above is damning in relation to that member of the AGs team though. He even questions whether they would have an indelible stain on their career by continuing not to appear in person. It’s clear that the Deemster has had enough of this embarrassing clown show and the piss poor behaviour of those on the government side of proceedings.
