The boss of Southern Health NHS, Katrina Percy, has announced she will step down this morning.

In a statement released by the Trust, she confirmed her resignation following a review into the organisation.

“On 30 June, Tim Smart announced the outcome of his review into Southern Health.

I was pleased to have his endorsement and support to carry on in my role as Chief Executive and I have been humbled by the overwhelming support from staff and other colleagues.

"Since then I have reflected on the effect the ongoing personal media attention has had on staff and patients and have come to the conclusion that this has made my role untenable.

I have therefore come to the difficult decision to step down from my role as Chief Executive after nine years.

I am delighted to be taking on an alternative role, providing strategic advice to local GP leaders as they work with others to transform the way in which health services are delivered across Hampshire, and I feel that now is the right time to take on that new challenge.

I know, and understand, that many will say I should have stepped down sooner given the very public concerns which have been raised in the past months.

I stayed on as I firmly believed it was my responsibility to oversee the necessary improvements and to continue the ground breaking work we have begun with GPs to transform care for our patients.

I would like to thank all of our staff for their unstinting daily support and dedication to delivering the best possible care for all those we look after. I wish everyone at the Trust, and everyone who has supported it, especially over the past year, all the best.”
