Will Monitor ever monitor?

Monitor is the organisation set up by NuLabour to ensure that NHS trusts are properly run and provide a high standard of care. It was Monitor who turned a blind eye while mismanagement at the Stafford NHS Trust led to over 1,000 avoidable patient deaths. Even after the scale of the massacre became clear, Monitor’s overpaid, self-serving politically subservient bosses didn’t see any reason to do their jobs.

I’ve just reported the Royal Bournemouth NHS Trust to Monitor accusing the trust of financial mismanagement when awarding a building contract to arguably Britain’s most corrupt construction company, Kier Construction. In 2009, Kier received the largest fine of 112 construction companies for bid-rigging and overcharging on £3 billion of public-sector contracts. When I was an elected governor for the Royal Bournemouth NHS Trust, a whistleblower working for Kier contacted me to tell me that the hospital had been overcharged by Kier who had rigged a £5.3m+ contract with the hospital. No doubt, the well-paid bosses at Monitor will once again do absolutely nothing.
