The interim chairman of Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust has announce that four non-executive directors have resigned.
Alan Yates said the trust has completed a review of its mental health and learning disability services and the findings will be published next week.
The Board has identified the benefits of much greater inclusion of service users and carers in the organisation as well as the delivery of its services, a systematic quality improvement methodology, the greater integration with primary care, and much greater involvement of clinical staff in the management and organisation of the Trust’s services.
Yates says he will look to develop a board with skills specific to these new strategic tasks.
The four non-executive directors have this week jointly offered their resignation from their posts so that the governors can recruit all five new non-executive directors. The Trust will also need to recruit a new Chair.
The trust plans to recruit these new roles as quickly as possible
