NHS: St Thomas's Hospital

Volume 684: debated on Monday 24 July 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will investigate the causes of the suspension and dismissal of a senior member of staff at the sickle cell anaemia unit of St Thomas's Hospital; and why these causes have not been communicated to him after several months.[HL6995]

This is a matter involving an individual member of staff who I understand is fully aware of the position and is in contact with the trust. It would be inappropriate for the trust to communicate details to any third party without their explicit consent. The trust's internal procedures are continuing and it would not be appropriate for me to comment.
