Chairman quits troubled hospital

3rd February 2012

Ed Anderson, the chairman of Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust – which closed an emergency department and considered bringing in army medics - is to stand down in March.

The trust was criticised for shutting Pontefract hospital’s A&E overnight from the start of November, prompting its chief executive to resign. The new acting chairman is David Stone, who had recently retired after 10 years in the same post at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Mr Anderson had been chairman since 2009.
