Cancer scandal trust still seeks top nurse

Essex County Standard: Cancer scandal trust still seeks top nurse Cancer scandal trust still seeks top nurse

ATTEMPTS to hire a top nurse to be responsible for Colchester's cancer patients have hit delays after no suitable candidates applied.

Hiring a lead cancer nurse was one of the key components of Colchester Hospitals Trust's response to last year's cancer scandal.

Two candidates were interviewed after the role was advertised on the NHS jobs website.

But a board of governors meeting yesterday heard neither met the trust's requirements.

The poisoned parochial chalice of the NHS, no one in their right mind would want to take this job, until those who were responsible for the lies, cover ups and deaths of the last fiasco are prosecuted and put away. For crying out loud Essex Police what have you been doing over there? There must be so many lumps under the carpet, that one needs a four wheel drive battery powered vehicle to get about. We want to see some action, then the Borough will get decent candidates coming forward to take over this post. No one is going to touch the place with a bargepole until the cancer of lies and deceit is cut away. The top honchos were not the only one's turning a blind eye and burying their heads in the sand. Others must have known what was going on? AVPG:
