STAFFORD Hospital’s finance boss is set to leave the trust by the end of the year.
Chief executive of Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust Maggie Oldham told the Newsletter director of finance Aaron Cummins would be leaving to take up a new role as deputy chief executive and director of finance at University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust.
“I would like to thank Aaron for the work he has done here over the past 18 months,” she said. “His commitment to addressing the considerable financial issues faced by the trust has been exceptional.”
Mrs Oldham said as when any member of staff tendered their resignation, the trust would now develop a recruitment plan around the post.
“We have no intention of not filling this vital position and welcome any expressions of interest,” she said.
Mr Cummins departure follows that of MSFT director of nursing Colin Ovington, who in July announced he would be taking up a post at neighbouring Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust at the end of the year.
