Maidstone NHS Trust: Managers

Volume 464: debated on Friday 19 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health on what date his Department was informed of (a) the proposed resignation of the former chief executive of the Maidstone NHS Trust and (b) the fact that a financial package was being negotiated for her. (159453)

The employment of staff, clinicians and managers within the national health service is a matter for local NHS boards. In the case of Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells we have asked the NHS trust to withhold any severance payment to the former chief executive prior to the Department considering legal advice on the matter.
