asked Her Majesty’s Government:

Whether the method of advertising senior management posts used by the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Trust in Birmingham is in accordance with National Health Service employment codes. [HL7064]

The appointment of staff to executive posts is the responsibility of individual National Health Service trusts based on fair and open competition. It is for strategic health authorities to ensure that trusts comply with this. The NHS West Midlands SHA reports that the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Trust is compliant with the relevant employment codes.
