Today the Trust confirmed the resignation saying "The consultant has offered to continue to treat patients and support the Trust and we are considering this."

Former postman Victor Nealon's conviction for attempted rape was quashed after he had spent 17 years behind bars.
He has now lost a High Court battle for compensation.
Mr Nealon, from Redditch in Worcestershire, had asked two judges to rule that UK law is incompatible with the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) because it wrongly restricts compensation in "miscarriage of justice" cases.
He was set free after appeal judges ruled that fresh evidence made his conviction unsafe. Mr Nealon had always denied being the attacker.
He intends to proceed to the Court of Appeal.
