New Hospital Trust boss announced

Essex County Standard: New Hospital Trust boss announced New Hospital Trust boss announced

COLCHESTER'S under fire hospitals trust has appointed a new boss.

Colchester Hospital University NHS Foundation Trust announced today it has appointed Kim Hodgson as its interim Chief Executive.

She will formally take up the interim position on 13 January.

However, Sue Barnett, Deputy Chief Executive at the Trust, also today publicly announced her resignation. Sue took charge of the Trust briefly at the end of 2013 after former Chief Executive Dr Gordon Coutts quit.

Last month's resignation followed the launch of three investigations that staff allegedly falsified cancer waiting times.

The Trust will be advertising shortly for a new, permanent Chief Executive.

Are The Police doing there job which is what is causing the issues?
If they are of which I doubt, then something is working or another sinister motive is causing the exodus.

I thought Inland Revenue were very unhappy with interim appointments as it can be a means of tax avoidance.
I wonder if they should be unhappy with this one?
