The managing director of Jersey’s General Hospital has resigned.

Helen O’Shea says she has made the decision for personal reasons.

She was appointed managing director in July 2012.

Jersey Health Department says she will continue in the role until then end of her notice period in February.

We have been saddened to receive Helen's resignation but respect the decision she's made. She has been a tremendous asset to the Hospital during her five years in post and will be a hard act to follow. Personally, I will miss working with her very much and wish her all the best for the future.

– Julie Garbutt, Chief Executive of the Health and Social Services
