Letter: Managers must spend public money appropriately

Graham Scotts editorial regarding money saved by the NMCs new approach to inappropriate referrals is to be applauded ( see editorial here ).

It is disappointing that many nurses, such as Pauline Cafferkey, have had to experience much personal trauma before something is done. This inappropriate use of individuals fees and taxpayers money is mirrored in other areas of our health services.

I believe there should be a much stricter regulation of those managers who are given responsibility for stewardship of public money.

There may never be enough money in the kitty but there certainly would be more if managers appropriated it more responsibly. Perhaps league ratings in the way public money is used might help?
