The shake-up in management follows concerns over high mortality figures. Operations were temporarily suspended earlier this year after concerns were raised over death rates at the children's heart unit at Leeds General Infirmary.
– Maggie Boyle
It has been a pleasure and a privilege to be chief executive at LTHT over the past six years.
I believe the move to new management arrangements which will see a clinically led, managerially supported structure being established is absolutely the right thing to do and will have enormous benefits for patient focused care delivery.
I would like to wish the senior leaders and all of their staff all best wishes for a successful future.
