NHS TRUST BOSS PAY FARCE
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.
