It’s an unwelcome return to Wirral Leaks to our old fiends Change! Grow! Live! , Wirral Ways To Recovery, Money,Money,Money or whatever they’re calling themselves these days!
We’re unhappy to report just how they’re earning their £7 million + from the Wirral Council Public Health budget from a thoroughly disillusioned insider:
Just when you thought Change Grow Live Wirral integrated drug and alcohol system couldn’t get any worse ‘‘just’ in keeping people alive they’ve botched it up again.
For over 4 years they have been testing people for Hep C and HIV with ‘faulty kits’ and gave some people their hep C results as being “not positive/negative”. When in fact the tests they used were faulty and some of the people they told were negative have in fact been positive! public health issue I think you’ll agree?
Everyone has to be re: tested and guess who is picking up the bill?…well its not the ‘charity’ commissioned to carry screenings out who’s income grew to £193 million last year -(which is what they’ve disclosed in their report so who knows what the actually amount is!) but the NHS via Arrowe Park Hospital.
How long did they know about this before acting on it… 6 months!
Up for tender too following an increase of 29% in drug related deaths nationally. Which they conveniently relate to “an aging population”. Well indeed but coincidentally those in the brackets of ‘aging population’ when treated by professionals in the past didn’t die at such ludicrous numbers.
Come on commissioners wake up.
Its not working on our doorsteps. Get it right surely people’s lives are worth more?
But hey! CGL have at least got a Hepatitis C strategy. Surely it’s gotta be worth millions of pounds of public money for consistently failing their patients and the public purse?…
