VIDEO: £25k pay rise for boss of failing NHS trust

The boss of a failing health trust has been given a massive pay rise - meaning she now earns more than the Prime Minister.

It emerged today that Karen Jackson's pay packet for running the Northern Lincolnshire and Goole Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, which was placed in special measures last month, has been increased by 25 thousand pounds.

The rise has been attacked by the taxpayers alliance but her trust chairman says she's worth it.
