Management ESSAY

The registrars are experienced and competent and 3. The registrars have low morale.

The CFO has not given you any other information on the Department. You have not been formally introduced to the staff and you have learned that there was no formal notice sent around advising of your position as Supervisor.  Your previous experience as the Supervisor of an out-patient registration department was in a small 200 bed community hospital.
