Hospital boss criticised for Superman video

One of our region's health bosses has been described as crass and insensitive after making a workplace video - where he transforms himself into Superman and dances through his hospital.

It's aimed at cutting stress levels but campaigners have reacted angrily because the Trust Phil Morley runs in Hull is set to slash a hundred million pounds off its budget.

They say it's the pressure of the cuts that's giving staff a pain in the neck, not hours spent at a desk. Victoria Whittam reports.

Watch the leaked NHS boss "Superman " video

A Yorkshire NHS boss has been slammed after a video featuring him dancing through hospital corridors in a Superman costume was leaked.

Phil Morley, Chief Executive of Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust, took a starring role in the promotional video for Workout at Work Day, an initiative aimed at tackling stress in the workplace.

Although intended for the 8,000 people that the organisation employs, an outraged worker leaked the video via YouTube, branding Morley “out of touch” and an “egomaniac”.
