    Default Doctors,not non-medical professional managers,should be running hospitals

    See http://www.amandagoodall.com/SS&MarticletJuly2011.pdf

    This research report,the first of its kind apparently,provides correlation evidence showing that good management of hospitals is associated more with doctor managers than professional managers without experience in medicine. This could make the case for appointing doctors as managers of underperforming Irish hospitals.

    Mission impossible managing that HSE workers co-op for unions and professional associations.

    The creation of specialist cancer centres of excellence was a major achievement by Drumm who brought in an Irish medical specialist from Canada to implement it. Which raises the question,what other medical specialties could benefit from centres of excellence?

    The UK NHS has eliminated waitng lists for hip and knee replacement operations by outsourcing to two private hospitals,with excellent clinical results.

    Sorry Pattslatt., haven't read report(will do in due course), but totally agree, this may be naieve of me but I feel that putting professionals in charge who have been through the system as hospital practitioners is a wise move, they are more aware of patient needs and also aware of the gaps in the system, and also able to delegate appropriatly.

    What journal published this report?
    At 12 weeks the “clump of cells” toes curl, her mouth makes sucking movements, she has a human face and if you prod the tummy she will move in response
