Bring back the Matrons

REGARDING the Inspector’s finds at the D.G.H. and Conquest hospitals.

The hospital managers are paid a very generous salary. What are they doing all day? Paper work?

They should be qualified nurses or medically trained to run the establishment.

They should be inspecting the wards daily to correct any lapses in standards of nursing, cleaning, and all aspects of patient welfare.

If not qualified why/how did they get an appointment? Rather like putting a plumber in charge of the Bank of England!

It would be better to spend their salary on caring staff. Bring back the matrons!
