I have been employed as a Midwife Matron since 2003 at NHS Hospital.
Recently the hospital was going through some cuts and restructuring.
In the Maternity department, there are 3 Matrons. It was decided that only 2 Matron would be needed.
Matron A, decided to hand in resignation and resigned her position.
Now there are 2 Matrons left.
It was also decided that all Matrons (previously 3, now 2) should re-apply for their positions (this was before Matron A resigned)
Anyway, interview went through, I know I did very well.
Only to be told that I was not successful in securing my post, which I have been responsible for in the past 9 years, with an unblemished record (no disciplinary actions, no long term sick leave or Absence) I even represented the Hospital on Radio shows and TV interviews (when in relation to Maternity related topics)
The current head of midwifery (my boss) who only got in about a year ago was among the people that interviewed me for my position. I was informed by her that I did soooo poorly during the interview. I strongly doubt & deny that!
to cut the long story short, my job was advertised and now, one her friends from a another hospital has been given my post! Now I have been made redundant!
