– Dr Will Faux, Chair of the RCHT Senior Staff Committee
The recent resignations from within the non-executive team will have no impact on the way the senior executive team, medical management and senior consultants work together. Patient care will not be affected by these changes and the business of the hospital will continue as normal. These events are unfortunately timed but will not impact adversely on our clinical performance as a trust or our ability to move forward with our development.
The most senior consultant at the Royal Cornwall Hospital has resigned from the board. Medical director Paul Upton is now the fifth member of the management team of one of the region's biggest hospitals to stand down.
