Local NHS wasting money and time, rather than following guidelines from NHS

get rid of all the managers, that are wasting time and money, for example locally they banned ecigs a few years ago, but since the report early last year they have been in meetings for around 15 months to decide if this policy needs changing in line with NHS guidelines

just how much is all this time wastes costing, 1 meeting i vote, maybe a day to so matter over, but no constant meetings and discussions etc etc all costing money, taking possibly taking staff of wards etc to attend and give their views

NHS have approved them, so they should be allowed all over, end of discussion and meetings just do it
