Just before Christmas we were asking why there hadn’t been an announcement about the new chair of Wirral University Teaching Hospital (WUTH) in our post Wirral University Teaching Hospital : Imagine…there’s still no announcement on appointment of Chairman.
However it would appear that we have an explanation for the ongoing WUTH soap opera from a well placed source who tells us :
“NHS Improvement were less than chuffed with the process for appointing a new chair of the board. The recent attempt produced two applications: from Sir Diddy (David Henshaw) and someone else who stood no chance. NHS Improvement demanded a readvertisement of the job. Applications closed on 19th December.”
We’ll keep you posted on further developments…
