WE ARE forever being told that the Welsh Ambulance Service is in crisis. What crisis? Despite continually claiming it is underfunded, the trust has appointed a part-time chairman, Mick Giannasi, on £59K for 15 days a month. How can they justify such an appointment? Mr Giannasi may have a proven track record but how effective will he be working part-time?

It seems that there is a bottomless pit when it comes to financing executive positions in the health service.
