THE NEW boss of Princess Alexandra Hospital in Harlow spent £50,000 on his NHS credit card, splashing out on fine dining and luxury hotel stays during his time in East Yorkshire reports the Hull Daily Mail.

Whilst he was meeting Harlow MP. Robert Halfon on Monday, the Hull Daily Mail revealed that Phil Morley spent thousands of pounds on restaurants and hotels at a time when staff at Hull Royal Infirmary and Castle Hill Hospital were under intense pressure to make savings of £95m.

While his credit card was used to pay for a £817.50 stay at the five-star Royal Horseguards Hotel in London, the former HQ of Britain’s Secret Service during The First World War, and a £1,284.05 stay at the four-star Montague in London, it was also used to pay a £17.88 bill at Greggs bakeries.

The Mail can reveal 15 other members of staff at Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust have also racked up credit card bills totalling almost £1m since the beginning of last year.

While £865k was spent on IT equipment, staff were also using their credit cards to pay for expensive meals, chocolates, flowers, soft furnishings, downloads from iTunes and hotels.
