The Curse of the Citizen
Ms. Green has been chief executive of the NHS Foundation Trust for 15 years, Mr Mahmood was the Hospital's medical director. The announcement of their resignations came soon after a statement issued early today by Tameside's three Labour MPs calling for Ms. Green to stand down.
This has been a bad week for the hospital management. The censoring of the by now famous "Grim Reaper" picture by Google (reported on the 26th) again brought into sharp focus the appalling death rate of Tameside hospital as well as numerous individual failings and tragedies.
It has now been revealed that Ms Green agreed to go last Thursday (June 27) but only announced her departure today.
