Hospital chairman resigns – MP praises his record

Further to the decision taken by the QEH chairman Edward Libbey to resign, Henry Bellingham MP for North West Norfolk said: “I was very sad to hear this has happened because he has been doing an excellent job.”

“Edward has been in his position for the past four-and-a-half-years, and led the trust during a very difficult time when they were coming out of the previous special measures programme. Since then he has done a first class job and presided over some truly excellent improvements, which are of enormous benefit to my constituents. Whilst it is highly unfortunate that the QEH has gone back into special measures I do have every confidence in their new recovery plan and I do think it is very sad Edward will not be there to see this through.”

“All in all Edward can be very proud of what he has achieved, and he will be a very hard act to follow, I would like to wish him every success for the future.”
