Wellingham seems to be as empty a vessel as his woke he/him credentials.

You may have realised that was just another of my extremely distasteful, sarcastic, remarks. The co. accounts are:

LinkedIn is for people to post their "big things wot I done" stuff. For someone to post an  association with a company like this, along with housing associations, is beyond my understanding. They might just as walk into the pub wearing a white track suit slashed to the waist, a chest wig, and gold medallions and say that Elvis is back.

Do you think they check all that stuff before they appoint? A personal consultancy company with hardly any assets and hardly any income.

It would be a lot more worrying if it did have a lot of income.  Presumably set up when one of the employers in his collection wanted to pay him that way and used to pick up other odd jobs.  He must be at least 60 (his year of starting Uni was 1980) so he'll no doubt be semi-retired with a decent pension from his years in social work, picking up these Board-sitting jobs here and there.

And that's the real problem with these people.  There basically there to make sure that things are done in the standard way that things are done in England, and that may not be the best way forward.  It also very much about 'governance' and how things look on paper, while the way things are happening on the ground may be very different.  That's why having people from off-Island is such a bad idea, because they have no links to tell them what the experience of those dealing with the local NHS is really like.

Someone suggested recently that we are now on the journey to eventually become a more formal part of the  NHS UK. I am not sure but it seems we are struggling now to carry on as we have been doing.

Perhaps the new Minister may have some thoughts on that ?

Utterly irrelevant distraction. Manx Care have hired him as a NED, not his Personal Service Company for payment and liability purposes. There are hundreds of thousands of similar one-man companies in the UK (and a fair number in the IoM). 

Whether they have done adequate due diligence on him as a potential NED is a separate matter!

As for the issues, I couldn't help noticing that the top priority for these directors is to "Cultivate the culture within Manx Care".  Rather that reform it.  

 

And this is bang on the point. There appears to be sod all recognition at leadership level, in Manx Care as in the wider Manx Public Sector, that culture needs to change, radically. The Manx Public Sector will continue failing, and dragging down the island and the quality of life experienced by most of the island's residents, until its culture is reformed.

Has anyone else had the Ramsey Group Practice newsletter through their door? Looks to have been written my managers and people who don’t appreciate that a lot of our older residents will be left confused/frustrated. Just my take on it, but I’m very happy to be proven wrong.

It could have been written on one page. However, this sentence in the first paragraph:

"We would like to thank all of our patients for your continued support and sharing our journey with us"

seems to be an "It's all about me" statement. They are not running yet another boutique coffee bar. I do not have the possibility of taking my "support" anywhere else.  I do not get ill so that I can help them on their journey to wherever they think they are going.
