Hospital Job Share

Concerning news from Tameside Hospital with the details that Chief Executive
Christine Green is to job share her current post with a new post of
temporary chief executive of Scarborough and North East Yorkshire Health

The new job which started this week and will continue until the Scarborough
and North East Yorkshire Trust can recruit a permanent chief executive has
caused concern amongst locals who have been campaigning for improved
standards of care at the hospital.

Ashton MP David Heyes has been quoted in one local paper last week as been
shocked and concerned at the announcement which has come at a crucial time
in the hospital's development.

His concerns which stem from the questions raised over the levels of care at
the hospital by Tameside coroner John Pollard and final investigated in a
review by Dame Pauline Fielding, have led to improvements in the hospitals
care plan, but campaigners are obviously concerned about what impact the
chief executive splitting her time between the two trust may cause.

This is particularly as the Scarborough Trust (as with Tameside) has
suffered difficulties in recent years with Christine Green been the fifth
boss to take control of the Scarborough Health Trust in the last six years.
