The meltdown continues over at Wirral Council Social Services Department were a “culture of bullying and intimidation” in the “dysfunctional” social services department seem the norm. As do the allegedly immoral practices that are accepted as ‘the way things are’ – But at least there are some within the organsiation who have had the courage to speak out “To impose an artificial four-week delay is illegal because the authority is failing in its duty to meet the assessed need. “The likely impact is the individual will suffer for longer than they need to.”
Are these the people we want looking after the most vulnerable in society ?Would this be acceptable if your mother or grandmother’s care was delayed for no other reason, we can see, other than to save money and make senior managers look good ?
Wirral Councils lamentable response, full of bluster and breathtaking in it’s self serving arrogance, does not, it should be noted, include an outright denial that such a blanket policy was in place and quite clearly ignores the fundamental questions. It instead concentrates on transparent and woeful arse covering.
“Dysfunctional” “Toxic” “Corrupt” “Self Serving” ? are comments that have been used to describe this local authority and yet there are still no sackings or resignations ? It’s a crying shame that it took a report at the cost of £250,000 of tax payers money to get the truth into the public domain.
