Day 448 of self-isolation - Dido, NHS chief?

Dido, NHS chief?

Dido Harding is expect to apply for the role of next NHS chief.

Please, no. She has overseen a stream of disasters, from the huge TalkTalk data breach to the Track and Trace system that was one disaster after another.

Surely there is someone in this country who is able to run a whelk stall?


  1. Baroness Harding of Winscombe has vowed to end England’s reliance on foreign doctors and nurses if she becomes the next head of the NHS.

    Harding, the former head of Test and Trace, formally applied last week to succeed Sir Simon Stevens to lead the health service.

    Her candidacy is controversial. The Conservative peer has chaired NHS Improvement since 2017 and is close to ministers, but her testing programme was condemned as ineffective and a waste of billions of pounds.

    1. And it was under her leadership that TalkTalk had their huge security breach.
