Here are some questions I’ve been hearing over the past few days. Could you provide some clarification, please?
1) Who, what person — right now, this moment — is responsible for running Cranford Hospice’s outpatient care?
2) By what conceivable logic — to say nothing of basic sense of fairness and integrity — is PSEC’s appointed manager, Barry Keane, a key member of the management team that even the independent audit said stuffed up “change management” at Cranford, participating in the evaluation of Cranford nurses who might wish to be employed in the new regime?
3) Given that DHB can set the terms of its “service contract” with PSEC, when Cranford Hospice resumes providing in-patient care in six months (or whenever), can we assume that PSEC will no longer be involved? And, what is the role — today, as well as in the future — of PSEC’s chief executive, Shaun Robinson, in the affairs of Cranford Hospice?
Additionally, as you know, I have made an Official Information Act request to the Commissioner of Health & Disability’s office for copies of the draft audit prepared by that office, and shared for comment with DHB and PSEC, as well as supporting interviews and documentation (cleansed of personally-identifying information). Will you save me the 20 working days allowed for this request and give me DHB’s copy of the draft report? I can drop by at your convenience to pick up a copy.
