NHS Direct warns 500 staff they could face redundancy


Received my redundancy notice yesterday, with a phone number for NHS Direct at the top of the letterhead which is not in service, and no attachments for what redundancy I can be expecting. What appalling treatment of loyal staff members. DOH and NHS England should hang their collective heads in shame - they have completed decimated what used to be a health service admired the world over. GP practices are in complete disarray, hospitals are in chaos, and another layer of management is created - what a cock-up!
