Public managers need to wake up and make the savings – Sussex Partnership

Making savings on a couple of big ticket items rather than lots of little ones can help achieve the level of public sector cuts required, says Lisa Rodrigues, chief executive of Sussex Partnership Mental Health Trust.

“Salami slicing and trimming back office functions will never achieve the levels of savings of between 4% and 12% a year required right here, right now in the public sector.

“Let’s get real. To adapt to reduced budgets and new ways of working, the public sector workforce and leadership must change.”
