NHS bosses have advertised more than £1million worth of diversity and sustainability jobs this year.

Nineteen so-called “non-jobs” are on offer — as the health service has been crippled by a month of strikes.

Pay ranges from around £20,000 to £88,364 per year for the Equality and Diversity Lead at Health Education England.

Ministers last year pledged to cut back on the roles and put more money to patient priorities.

But John O’Connell, chief executive of The TaxPayers’ Alliance, which carried out the analysis, said the huge sums suggest the NHS’s “New Year’s resolution has been abandoned”.

He told The Sun: “Taxpayers are sick to the back teeth of NHS non-jobs. Time for health chiefs to focus funds on the frontline.”

No 10 announced plans to reduce diversity officers last June, when then-Health Secretary Sajid Javid said there were too many roles focused solely on diversity and inclusion.

More than 800 diversity officers were employed by the health service last year. The new jobs have been listed since January 5, one day before the first nurses’ strike.

Despite tensions and pay rows, the NHS advertised 13 diversity and sustainability roles that are paid more than the £33,000 a year earned by the average nurse.

They include an Associate Director for People Development and Inclusion job in Dorset that pays up to £77,274.

The job advert, posted on January 11, lists overseeing “wellbeing, equality and inclusion” as a duty.

Another, the head of lived experience and involvement at a trust in Yorkshire, offers up to £65,000.

Chris Snowdon, at the Institute of Economic Affairs, told The Sun: “The NHS has far fewer doctors per 1,000 people than most EU countries and has half as many hospital beds, but it seems to have an unlimited budget for Net Zero managers and Equality and Diversity officers.

“One million pounds isn’t a great deal in the context of the £200billion the NHS burns through every year, but it is just the tip of the iceberg of wasteful spending by an organisation that claims to be short of cash.”

An NHS spokesman said: “While it is down to individual Trusts to decide how to support their own staff, NHS England is reducing the number of job posts by up to 40 per cent.

“The NHS is one of the most efficient health services in the world, spending a far lower proportion on administration costs than comparable countries.”

Jim Harbaugh has reportedly worn out his NFL welcome with flip-flopping interest

Michigan fans may not have to go through any more Jim Harbaugh-to-the-NFL rumors with the head coach reportedly losing interest from pro teams.

Broncos owner Greg Penner recently met in person to discuss the open head coaching position in Denver…but it shouldn’t be cause for concern for Michigan.

Adam Schefter reported the story for ESPN on Saturday night, confirming earlier rumblings on Twitter that the Broncos had circled back to Harbaugh.

Two things from Schefter’s report should interest Michigan fans, and their rivals: 1) The Broncos took another swing at Harbaugh and apparently missed. So Harbaugh isn’t going anywhere. 2) Rumors linking Harbaugh to the NFL may be less likely to crop up again next year.

“One league source predicted this week that the league will move on and Harbaugh is not likely to have many NFL options in the future,” Schefter wrote.

If that’s not music to Wolverine ears, what is?

Jim Harbaugh appears to have worn out his NFL welcome

The last two offseasons at Michigan have been filled with speculation and rumors about Harbaugh leaving Ann Arbor for the NFL.

On the one hand, Harbaugh has been consistent with his messaging about staying at Michigan. He’s confirmed and re-confirmed his commitment to the Wolverines.

On the other hand, he’s invited interest and taken interviews with multiple NFL franchises. Last year he met with the Vikings. This year he met with the Broncos. He also agreed to an in-person meeting in Ann Arbor with the team owner.

Michigan fans are tired of the back-and-forth between Harbaugh and the NFL, so the idea that pro teams are losing interest in the head coach is a welcome development.

Of course, that may be the case in January of 2023. If Harbaugh leads Michigan to the College Football Playoff again, and does one better by winning it, will interest be piqued again?

The frustration is real, but at least it’s better to have a coach who is successful enough to garner NFL attention than one who is not.
