The finance director of the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital has resigned.

Julie Cave had been with the trust since 2009. It now faces a £9.5m deficit.

Her departure means there are only two permanent directors in its executive team.

Norwich North MP Chloe Smith said she would be seeking reassurance from the trust's chief executive that the resignation would not impact on patients and the care they received.
