Managers in NHS decrease due to cutsNew figures have stated that numbers of managers in the NHS are being affected by cuts.

In 2010 there was a 7.5 per cent drop according to figures of New Department of Health and since 2006 this is being termed as the first fall in senior staff numbers.

Across Birmingham, the Black Country, Worcestershire, Staffordshire and Shropshire, in 2009 to last year there was a dip in manager levels within the West Midlands Strategic Health Authority area as it was 4249 from 4600.

In an attempt to meet the demands of the government, millions of pounds being made in savings by NHS West Midlands, hospitals and primary care trusts and for doing so they are being forced.

In the region, over three years, there has to be cuts by £98 million in management costs.

It was however stated in a report from The NHS Information Centre, England’s central source of health data, that there was a minor increase in the number of staff in the health services on national level despite a dip in managers. And this increase was about 0.7 per cent.
