Further details have emerged about a heated meeting in which York’s GPs said they had no confidence in NHS managers.
Doctors and practice managers from across the York and Selby area made a statement of no confidence in the senior management at Vale of York Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) earlier this year.
The meeting in Sand Hutton had been told the Vale of York CCG – which controls local NHS budgets from West Offices in Station Rise – was facing a financial deficit of about £6 million and a plan had been submitted to NHS England on how it planned to close the gap, minutes from the meeting have shown.
This was to avoid being put in special measures and a “turnaround team” being sent from NHS England.
After leaving the room for a discussion between the Council of Representatives, managers were anecdotally said to be “visibly upset” to have a statement of no-confidence read to them.
