GPs miss out on 'critical' correspondence for five years due to support service error

Comment

One can only assume the delivery of £1bn savings is to come from saved pension payments from the people adversely affected (killed) by this incompetence. Monumental failures of this type should ensure that the private companies are made bankrupt by the compensation to patients and the commissioning organisation. Unrealistically low bids should be punitively fined, and directors held to account, potentially corporate manslaughter where pathways have been delayed. Directors and major shareholders should be prevented from holding any similar office for 20 years. After all a clinician who made a major error would have their career finished by it, the same needs to apply to management in life impacting industries.
