Sometimes a graph just says it all
Sometimes a graph just says it all. Sources are the Norfolk & Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust Annual Report & Accounts 2012 and 2013. Figures are the percentage changes in mean number of whole time equivalent (WTE) staff employed in the listed categories during the financial years ending 2011 and 2013.

    I’m not trying to undermine this statement or article but without some explanation this graph doesn’t add up.  A couple points that I’d like to note are:

    1.  NSFT wasn’t formed until January 2012, therefore how is it possible to reference the 2011 annual report.

    2. I’t would be great to see a link to the actual reports where this information came from from as I’m sure the definition ‘bureaucrat’ isn’t used within the report.

    For me, these omissions detract from the statement that you’re making here and puts you in the same ‘spin doctor’ category as some of the dubious statements that have come from the Trust in justifying decision making.  Which is a shame.

      1. Number employed by the two trusts that formed NSFT in 2010-11 financial year is available in the 2011-12 NSFT Annual Report, orange accounts page 39. On the same page it details the number employed in the 2011-12 financial year. The number employed in the 2012-13 financial year is available in the 2012-13 NSFT Annual Report, accounts page A35. The typo has been corrected.

      2. The NSFT Annual Report 2011-12 is available to download here. The NSFT Annual Report 2012-13 is available to download here. The term used is ‘Estates and Admin’ rather than bureaucrat. The source of the information was given and these reports remain available for download on the NSFT website.

      Thank you for your comments.
