No end to the farce that is RDGH?

The Star also reports today on the farce at RDGH:

Hospital’s huge bill for management shake-up

Huge bills are being racked up to pay for experts to turn around a financial crisis facing the NHS trust running Rotherham Hospitals.

Details of spending uncovered at Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust include a deal which has earned a firm of executives tens of thousands in expenses – on top of fees worth £70,000 a month.

Another executive has been recruited from the United States at a cost of £25,000 a month plus expenses to rescue a failing multi-million-pound IT system.

The turmoil has led to the appointment of another executive on £600 a day to organise job cuts who also does not need to provide evidence for expenses of up to £300 a week. Read on and weep!
