The Greensill collapse - Lobbying – David Cameron – The NHS What has this scandal got to do with us?
When Greensill Finance was wound up it was quietly lobbying the government for funding which was intended to protect the economy from the stresses of lockdown.
At the same time, the company was promoting its services to individual NHS Trusts and seeking privileged cooperation from NHSX in order to access the ESR (Electronic Staff Record)
In May, 2021, Greensill Finance went into liquidation. The future of the Earnd app and its users is still not clear.
Some key numbers
450 The number of NHS staff already using Earnd
3 The number of NHS Trusts already involved with Greensill Finance
£150,000 The salary of a British Prime Minister. (Cameron says his Greensill salary is/was much more than this)
£200m The amount that Cameron might have gained if Greensill had been successful
30,000 The number of younger NHS workers using 5 or more loan providers
100+ The number of different loan providers being used by NHS staff
4% The proportion of NHS staff who have a regular saving arrangement
£18,005 - £19,337 Band 2 (e.g. housekeeping assistant) pay rates
£19,084 - £104,927 Band 9 (e.g.chief finance manager) pay rates
-3,700 Number of nurses registered with the Royal College of Nursing this year
The big messages:
1. NHS staff are clearly struggling on current pay provision
2. Financial institutions are hovering like vultures around the NHS workforce
