I like the "Communications Waste Strategy Officer" could start with the job advert as an example of waste.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

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.

I was given some of the lowdown by one of the board members.  Best not to say anything  Huh
Having said that Broomfield is now a very well run hospital although they've had further upsets at board level where Prof Graham Ramsay is now Chief Executive and they are pursuing Foundation Trust again, having had to put it on hold for a while.
