North West NHS bosses are backing the ‘gagging and sacking’ of whistleblowing nurse Karen Reissmann.
That’s the only conclusion that can be drawn from an official statement by the Manchester Trust.
They have declared: “NHS North West has made very senior management support available to the trust if they require it.”
Which means that while chief executive Sheila Foley is on holiday in Dubai, EXTRA bosses are standing by, ready to be drafted in to help out.
We do not know how much this ‘very senior management support’ from the Region is costing the Manchester Trust, which is already in the red.
Nor do we know who has authorised this.
Nor do we know exactly what it is that they will be doing……..
But clearly the Region is ready to do everything it can to make sure Karen stays sacked, nurses are ‘gagged’ – and UNISON is defeated.
