Senior trust medics complain of ‘excessively authoritarian’ management

Senior doctors in the radiology services at the University Hospitals North Midlands Trust have reported a ‘toxic’ culture and feelings that managers had been ‘excessively authoritarian’.

In a letter sent by medical director John Oxtoby on 13 July, consultants who had been interviewed as part of an external review, have reported the culture within the department was “unhealthy and even toxic, and that this was impacting to some degree nearly all of the consultants interviewed”

“It is clear from this work that as well as the need to tackle working relationships and some behaviours in the department, there is a huge amount of collective pride in the services delivered by the department.” Said Mr Oxtoby.
