The above leak is an extract from a ‘What’s App’ convo involving the ‘Osborne Dream Team’ . Apparently this particular nightmarish ‘Dream Team’ is based at Osborne Court* in Birkenhead which consists of  3 ‘independent supported living units’ serviced by 365 Support and funded by what was Wirral Social Services and which Wirral Council couldn’t wait to get rid of and which has consequently  been subsumed and funded by the NHS (or more accurately YOU).  

*BTW this particular Osborne Court is not to be confused with Osborne Court nursing home in Port Sunlight.

Now we don’t know whether GILL BOSS is a) dead good , like b) a distant relation of Hugo or c) so insecure about her position she calls herself BOSS in BOLD.

What we also don’t know is whether the financial abuse of vulnerable people (aka a crime) was reported to the proper authorities (or in the case of Wirral – the improper authorities) . All we do know is that MS BOSS can’t spel 4 toffi …

On a serious note – all this despairing that the NHS may be up  for sale. People need to remember that  social care – the (very) poor and unloved relation of the NHS – has locally been flogged off to moneygrabbing opportunists for years. And has care improved? Has it hell as like! The number of  Wirral ‘care’ services rated as ‘inadequate’ or ‘requiring improvement’ by the regulator the Care Quality Commission is an absolute disgrace.

But then again asking for social care to be brought back into public ownership is currently on a hiding to nothing.  Having said that we do have to wonder what made the Highways Department returning to Wirral Council such a special case ? What’s more some of us also remember that thieving from the vulnerable hasn’t always been the exclusive preserve of the private sector…
