Trust trou­ble

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Road Campaigns -

The chair­man of East Kent Hos­pi­tals Univer­sity NHS Foun­da­tion Trust is step­ping down just weeks after the shock de­par­ture of its chief ex­ec­u­tive. Nikki Cole, who has been in the £50,000-a-year post since May 2015, will follow Matthew Ker­shaw out of the door as the trust faces an un­prece­dented A&E cri­sis. The 59-year-old will be re­placed on an in­terim ba­sis by Dr Peter Carter, who was ranked one of the 100 most in­flu­en­tial peo­ple in health while chief ex­ec­u­tive of the Royal Col­lege of Nurs­ing and the Cen­tral and North West Lon­don NHS Foun­da­tion Trust.
