Regular readers will know I spent ages writing a letter to the Sloven governors at the beginning of the year outlining the boards (barbaric? inhumane?) treatment of us since LB’s death. It was a deeply distressing task which took hours. I didn’t cover every bit of action (or non action) because it would have been unreadable. The letter can be read in full here.
It ended with this paragraph:
Only one governor, Mark Aspinall, demonstrated any interest in responding properly to my letter, as I chased up an answer every few weeks for four months. Apparently it was taking a long time to go through all the points I raised and getting the governors to agree to a reply. Last week we heard from Jim Mackey that NHS Improvement had followed up the non response with the trust and had requested a copy of the reply too.
I received this letter the next day.
[Before reading it, you should probably make sure there is nothing breakable within reaching distance. In all seriousness.]
Please hurry up someone and do something with this totally toxic, festering bunch of self satisfied and equally stupid, pointless people. I now have rage feelings in parts of my body I didn’t know existed before. LB died [he died???] and you – the board and now the governors – have treated us with contempt, disrespect and much worse.
How is this remotely acceptable? And how do any of you, and I mean all of you, possibly sleep at night?
