I'm sure they meant well, but the management team at the Primary Care Trust that employed two interim execs on £1,000 a day each should admit themselves to their own hospital and have their heads examined.

It seems that, for whatever reason, the message to keep a lid on management salaries has simply not sunk in.

Instead, the Luton PCT paid £265,000 to Keith Edmunds for a 12-month stint as interim director of commissioning while his colleague Chris White was paid up to £235,000 for spending just over a year as interim chief operations officer.
