'Rude' consultant sacked

A CONSULTANT haematologist who claimed she had an affair with a hospital chief executive was sacked last night.

Helena Daly, 41, alleged she had 'a close and loving relationship' with John Saxby, who suspended her last September from Treliske Hospital in Truro. But the Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust said Dr Daly was dismissed because she was rude, bossy and aggressive to staff.

Mr Saxby, who later moved to take a new post in the health service in the North-east, denies Dr Daly's claims. The allegations of personal misconduct against Dr Daly were made at a disciplinary hearing.
