Blimey!!

Last night I had the dubious privelege of attending a nhs local community information meeting in the village hall.
During the interval, a large pompous self-centred woman approached me and began making conversation.
She informed me that she was the assistant director of corporate stategies.
In my best disinterested accent and facial gestures i asked her what exactly her job involved.
She said that her directorate was responsible for  encouraging and enabling "clients" to achieve a sense of self empowerment, and thereby take control of the multifactorial issues in their lives, with the concomitant reduction in having to address the various nhs  specialist staff on non clinical issues.
Having digested this mouthfull of verbosity, she then went on to add that  her directorate had a corporate responsibility for collecting and analysing the strategic recommendations made in several white paper consultative documents issued by the
various working parties concerned with local communities and their empowerment needs within the structured access arrangements of the local and regional service.
I went away muttering to myself ......oh dear god............save us from these lunatics. Cry

Re: Blimey!!

Congratulations for remembering all that verbal diarrhoea. Don't suppose you got a translation? Guess you still don't know what she does, should ask her how much of the tax-payers money she's paid for it though.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Blimey!!

Having read it carefully, I think it means that patients should look after themselves when they get home from hospital....

In my opinion, not just "some hospitals" but all hospitals.
You may feel OK to leave the plumbing to a plumber, but in my experience where life is involved (in hospital or at your GP's) you have to look after yourself or take the consequences..... Sad

Wink confess to!
but i shall try:
confession made at 13.28pm:          "oh lord save me and protect me form these  vituperative posters on intenet forums and  those who give themselves forum "names "which give the appearance of  some kind of legitamacy to propogate the forums with  misguided ego defensive
mechanisms and non therapeutic displacement of sub-comscious angst

I have a confession: I despise most (nay, all) NHS Administrators!
@Petlew
If you think 45K per annum for an NHS worker is lowly, why am I earning far less, when I work with patients; not spouting on about how grand my job is, in some church hall?  Shocked

Re: Blimey!!

From my experience of the NHS £45k is towards the lower end of salaries for administrators.  It's the sharp end of the NHS, medical and nursing staff, where salaries are not so good, and neither are manning levels.

Re: Blimey!!

Yes thank you artmo, you covered my response completely. Johpal, I was not meaning to denigrate those wonderful hard working (and under-paid) folk at the sharp end of the NHS. The "job title" in the OP seemed quite capable of commanding a much higher salary. Possible she's a bit more junior than she evidently thinks she is.

@Petlew
Phew! Thanks; for a while I was under the impression the general public thought all NHS staff commanded that sort of salary.
