Chief steps down in wake of di­ag­no­sis

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Hospital In Crisis -

In June, the trust’s chief ex­ec­u­tive, Stu­art Bain, an­nounced his plans to step down fol­low­ing his di­ag­no­sis with man­tle cell lym­phoma.

At the time he said: “It is with great sad­ness that I am telling you to­day that, af­ter a pe­riod of deep re­flec­tion and thought, I have de­cided that it is best both for our Trust and for me per­son­ally that I re­tire at the end of this year.

“I was di­ag­nosed with man­tle cell lym­phoma in 2013 and whilst this thank­fully is not hav­ing any ma­te­rial im­pact on my health cur­rently, I feel that the fu­ture un­cer­tainty sur­round­ing my health means I need to ques­tion whether I can re­al­is­ti­cally re­main in post un­til my planned re­tire­ment year of 2016.”

Mr Bain joined the Trust in 2007 and will leave at the end of the year.
