so ......over this parliament consultant numbers have risen, nursing numbers have risen and management has been cut by 18%. NHS performance has dropped as management numbers have dropped - is there a correlation here?

Is there a trend to overspend at the end of every parliament? As politicians strive to either show improvement or mitigate poor performance they and managers loose the reins? In the case of this Parliament it probably makes an already poor position worse.
