Sheffield Green Party comments on the report into allegations of bullying and dysfunction in the senior management of Sheffield CCG

Cllr Martin Phipps, a member of Sheffield City Council’s Health Scrutiny Committee, commented,

“It’s disturbing and unacceptable to hear of a culture of bullying and abuse in any organisation, let alone one responsible for delivering £800m a year worth of public services.

This is not just a squabble amongst senior NHS managers. This dysfunctional organisation has been responsible for the fiasco over plans to close the Walk-In Centre on Broad Lane and the Minor Injuries Unit at the Hallamshire Hospital. Many well-paid officials have been working on this for several years and still botched last year’s consultation by giving the public 3 options, which all involved closing these services.

As a Green councillor, I am continuing to oppose these closures of popular and well-used services.

Green Party candidate, Ruth Mersereau, added,

“The Walk-In Centre is a valuable and popular resource for so many people, especially because it is so accessible to people who live or work in the city centre.”
