NHS TRUST BOSS PAY FARCE

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

THE out­go­ing boss of the heav­ily-crit­i­cised South­ern Health NHS Foun­da­tion Trust is still to be em­ployed by the or­gan­i­sa­tion in a new role – pulling in the same pay and ben­e­fits of around £240,000 a year.

Ka­t­rina Percy an­nounced her de­ci­sion to stand aside as chief ex­ec­u­tive but is to stay on as a strate­gic ad­viser.

Ms Percy (right) will be “pro­vid­ing strate­gic ad­vice to lo­cal GP lead­ers” and her salary will not change, a trust spokes­woman added.

Ms Percy said she was step­ping aside from the top job af­ter her po­si­tion be­came “un­ten­able”.

The trust has been the sub­ject of in­de­pen­dent gov­ern­ment re­views since it was re­vealed it failed to in­ves­ti­gate the un­ex­pected deaths of hun­dreds of its pa­tients be­tween 2011 and 2015.
