Extract for the Minutes of the Joint Consultative Committee meeting held on
17th May 2012.
BRIEFING ON BOARD DISCUSSIONS REGARDING SOUTH WEST ACUTE TRUSTS
XX had sent through a list of questions about this prior to the meeting, which XX
responded to one by one. XX gave a briefing on the purpose and structure of the
consortium, which he promised to send round after the meeting. (See attached). XX
said he was deeply concerned about the proposals, which in his opinion were intended
to depress pay of NHS staff. This would inevitably lead to fragmentation and disputes
with staff in the future.
