So we are now being told that it’s costing millions of pounds to get relief doctors and nurses to help in the health service.
If we can afford to pay the agencies hiring these people to the health service surely we can afford to set the doctors and nurses on, bypassing the agencies.
On the Andrew Marr show on Sunday, May 31, the health minister admitted we were paying over the odds, in fact his actual words were “being ripped of” by the agencies.
It seems wherever public money is concerned it’s very lucrative for some people.
Why do these people who have been elected to run the country let the rip-offs carry on?
