ANOTHER Croydon University Hospital director has resigned, the Advertiser can reveal.
News of Karen Jones resigning comes just days after the Advertiser revealed chairman Michael Parker will be stepping down.
A press release is set to be issued later today or tomorrow, the Advertiser understands, which will say Ms Jones, a non-executive director, has left for "personal reasons".
We revealed on Friday Mr Parker was "asked" to resign because he was against current interim chief executive, John Goulston, being included in the list of candidates to become permanent chief. Mr Parker will officially step down on December 31.
Mike Bell, currently vice chair at NHS London Strategic Health Authority, will be installed as interim chair from January 2, 2013.
Mr Bell will also undertake a review of governance which will decide who is appointed the trust's next chief executive.
But the Advertiser understands the decision to make Mr Goulston permanently chief executive has already been made.
The Advertiser also understands Mr Parker is resigning after becoming unhappy at the decision to install Mr Goulston. As a result, he has been "asked" to resign.
The resignation forms the latest in a saga of instability at the top which has dogged the trust as it struggles to address failings highlighted in a damning health watchdog report earlier this year, which found lives were being put at risk.
Read the full story of the week's events in Friday's edition of the Advertiser.
