Unison “Nurse” is Privately Pocket Lining Too

Remember our good friend Nurse Pilgrim? She’s the taxpayer-funded, full time Unison union-worker who made up details of a meeting with Lansley that she didn’t attend. Well it appears that whilst we pay for her to work for a trade union she’s lining her pockets in the private sector. Not content with depriving St George’s Tooting of a frontline active nurse, Jane Pilgrim has her own private consultancy firm Pilgrim Way:

“Pilgrimway” beleave [sic.] that Staff engagement and happiness produce productive and successful companies and services. Our consultant “Jane Pilgrim” is an award winner in partnership working and has been able to lead successful staff engagement projects, in the NHS to improve customer care ,work relationships and create great places to work.

We are able to offer packages designed for your needs:-
Team Building
Customer Service Training
Staff Engagement workshops”

Guido’s first thought was “do St George’s know about this?”. Well he hopes this is news to them, but has a feeling they tacitly endorse it. Especially given Alan Thorne, the hospital’s absurdly titled and salaried “Director of Transformation” (paid around £95 – £100,0000 last year) is featured in a photograph on the site:

Thorne and Pilgrim work closely together at St Georges. Do they have a private professional relationship too? Given she’s a burden on the taxpayer full-time, one fellow Unison figure pondered to Guido how this outside consultancy is possibly compatible with her day job? Sadly Nurse Pilgrim is still not talking to Guido. Time to go above her head…

      7 million more of them, thanks to the Glorious Turnip picking revolution of 1997 – 2010.

      Meanwhile, we pay the bloated Stella belching “unemployed” £65 a week (plus perks like rent, council tax etc) to sit on the sofa in nylon football shirts and Poles and Latvians are filling the fields with crops and their wallets with hard cash to take back to their homelands. Sangatte still has an enormous queue of “chancers” from the ‘Stans ready to try their luck at the land of milk and honey welfare pot.

      Quote of the day comes from a leaflet I downloaded from Tower Hamlets

      “In Somalia, you worked six days and chewed khat one day. In England, you chew khat seven days.”

      ST says:

      Your right, my Mum’s a nurse, a thin one. She was getting some grief during a promoting health meeting, as the fact she smokes was seen as sending the wrong message.

      She lost her temper and said she’s perhaps listen if she wasn’t being lectured by a bunch of fat people, who feed themselves and their children shit. One of them burst in to tears.

      The lesson: don’t mess with my Mum.

      She has recently become a Union rep for a variety of reasons, I imagine it will get ugly when she tells them she thinks the community nursing should be commissioned from private companies.

    • 192
      ST says:

      Nurses aren’t scum, the Nursing unions and NHS managment are scum.

      The Nursing unions don’t represent their members, and don’t offer them any protection. Unsafe working practices are endemic in the NHS due to bad managment but when it goes tits up the Nurse takes the blame. The nurses are bullied by ineffective managment, and told scare stories by the unions to keep them quiet and stop them objecting to the system as it exists.

      The Unions don’t act in their members interest, they work to maintain the status quo and they jealously guard the power this affords them. Likewise NHS managment seeks to maintain the status quo because they’re shit, and if the system changes they will be fucked. Currently NHS managers aren’t sacked, they are simply moved.

      So the unions and managment collude to maintain a system which works to their mutual advantage. Meanwhile the nurses get shat on, the patients get shat on, and the tax payer gets shat on.

      Bott calibration can be a hit and miss affair which sometimes backfires, pretty much like the “Rich and Marks Monday Morning View” which is actually meant to be very unfunny and an award winner in this respect.

At least this would stop migrants coming in, using the service and leaving again. We can’t afford to pay for the world to use our NHS – but it sure feels like it at the moment.

    ‘“Pilgrimway” beleave that Staff engagement and happiness produce productive and successful companies and services.

    ‘Our consultant “Jane Pilgrim” is an award winner in partnership working…’

    I am deeply suspicious.

    Firstly, I have never seen ‘believe’ spelt like that.

    Secondly, in her website’s blurb she is described as”Jane Pilgrim”, rather than Jane Pilgrim. This suggests she is not a real person or uses a made-up name.

    This leads me to believe that Jane Pilgrim – like National Treasure Gillian Duffy – is not what she seems.

    Jane Pilgrim is, in fact, Derek Draper.

    serious question – why are so many nurses overwright? I’m no model myself but I was at the Drs the other day and the ‘diabetes nurse’ waddled past – how can you take ‘advice’ from her?

    Also, how can you make a hospital a nice way to work? it is full of sick people. You are there to try and heal them not have contemplation suites and massage in your spare time.

    I rarely resort to the ad hominem. However, on this occasion, to depart from my normal practice will be a pleasure. She is an ugly, obese, smug, ignorant, state-fed type of woman that might as well have “Labour voter” inked all over her surface in black 50-point. She represents everything in life that I detest.

    sounds a bit ‘I have a dream’ to me:

    Jane Pilgrim, Staffside Secretary, said: “This project will help to motivate, empower and inspire our staff at grass roots. I see this as the beginning of a new positive culture for St George’s. There will be a day, not too far away, when all staff feel that they are valued and appreciated and treated as partners rather than employees.”

    Andrew Lansley bankrolled by private healthcare provider says:

    Andrew Lansley, the shadow health secretary, is being bankrolled by the head of one of the biggest private health providers to the NHS, The Daily Telegraph can disclose.

    John Nash, the chairman of Care UK, gave £21,000 to fund Andrew Lansley’s personal office in November.

    Mr Nash, a private equ ity tycoon, also manages several other businesses providing services to the NHS and stands to be one of the biggest beneficiaries of Conservative policies to increase the use of private health providers.

    UKCut says:

    And don’t forget the billions the NHS waste on such vital jobs as “communications”.

    Through work, I once came across a supremely flakey and lazy NHS Communications “Officer” earning around £80k a year. Her post was a rolling “temporarary’ 9-month contract.

    This meant she spent her first 3 months learning the ropes/being “handed-over” to by the previous occupant, the next 3 months was spent recruiting her replacement, followed by 3 months handing-over to the new person. The new person then repeated the process. As far as I can tell the only ahem “work” she did was to “initiate” a website project that never happened

    I used to have a temperature until the nurse took it yesterday.

    Why do UNISON not pay their own staff and stop stealing from the taxpayer? This one is really on the make and her nursing colleagues are being taken for a ride. Common behaviour by union representatives who get their noses in the trough (first).

    David Cameron agreed today that the coalition was split over tackling immigration, after he was accused by a Cabinet minister of using “very unwise” language which risked inflaming extremism.

    The Prime Minister agreed with Business Secretary Vince Cable’s criticism – insisting he was dealing with an issue of high public importance in a “sensible, measured, serious tone,but I am aware of the threat posed by UKIP at the forthcoming local elections.It is time for the electorate to give UKIP the fuck off tablet”

Ralph Miliband on the English…

“The Englishman is a rabid nationalist. They are perhaps the most nationalist people in the world.”

Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
