UH NHS trust

Former MP Jacqui Smith, who lost her Redditch seat after being involved in an expenses scandal has been appointed chair of University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Trust.

Her promotion follows so many rewards for political, financial and commercial failure, including:

Goldman Sachs
Dave Hartnett
London Midlands Rail
Hector Sants

Edgbaston MP Gisela Stuart is quoted in the Birmingham Post today as saying “It looks to me as if we are rewarding failure and I have raised this with the Health Secretary.”
