Hospital trust chief resigns

Hospital trust chief resigns

The chief executive of one of Britain's biggest hospital trusts has resigned from his pounds 100,000-a-year post, it was revealed last night.

Jonathan Boyack, chief executive of the University Hospital, Birmingham, NHS Trust, resigned amid complaints about his style of work. A spokeswoman for the trust said: "Mr Boyack had been on special leave since December of last year following complaints about his management style by senior managers and some clinicians. There was a trust investigation which had not reached a conclusion. He resigned before the investigation was completed."

Mr Boyack joined the trust as chief executive in January 1995. The trust has two hospitals under its control, Birmingham's Selly Oak, and Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
