REDESIGN IS FIRST STEP TO PRIVATISATION

Bollan Jim 8Councillor Jim Bollan –  News reaches me today that the SNP Council have supported the Health & Social Care Partnership’s decision to spend £400,000 on employing “Change Managers” to “redesign” all the care services.  This is the H&SCP that recently increased the charge for the emergency Alert Alarm System by 100% and also increased Daycare charges again for vulnerable people by 60%. In my experience “redesign of services” has always meant more job cuts, and cuts to internal budgets resulting in an inferior service.  “Redesigning Services” is the first step to Privatisation.

  1. Too true. At the last count WDC were £400 million in debt. Recently I was told £500 million. There’s no smoke without a fire sale. I predict the spring….we’re already in recession…we’re heading into the Great Bust. It’ll make the Great Depression look like a picnic.Where’s the SNP? Hiding. Where’s Labour? Who cares.

  2. Redesign restructure reconfiguration these should be recognised industrial injuries as every time it happens staff members are stressed anxious and sickness absences soar. As it happens so regularly then it obviously it doesn’t work. Stop doing it.
