Cancel The Operations And Hire An Art Curator

via Bishop Hill, this remarkable tale of the NHS. Not since the legendary 'amputate healthy legs' etc etc ...

A hospital's decision to hire an art curator days after it was criticised for cancelled operations and a poor MRSA record has been condemned by nurses and patients.
Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge has placed an advertisement for the £37,000 a year post in today’s edition of The Guardian, and it also appeared in the Public Agenda section of The Times. But patient groups believe that the money could be better spent on nursing staff and cleaners.
