We need less rules and regulations but more accountability
Thursday, 27 November 2008 17:08

Whether it's baby P or fathers impregnating their daughters so they can live off the benefit payments we do not need more rules, regulations or targets.

So-called 'professionals', whether social workers, doctors or managers need to do their jobs and be held accountable.

If you look at many cases where doctors or social workers are suspended or dismissed you find that they are re-instated on appeal. No penalty there then.

Politicians make lots of noise about how awful these cases are and how 'lessons will be learned' but nothing changes. Nothing will change until we have a system that gets rid of ineffective workers and managers and makes sure they can't do the same job again.

There are no second chances for the likes of baby P, now it's social workers as well as doctors who bury their mistakes.
