Tameside Hospital: Senior bosses resign from trust

The two most senior managers at a hospital investigated for high death rates have resigned from their jobs.

The resignations were announced on the day it emerged Tameside Hospital had been criticised for its poor patient care by two independent reviews.

Christine Green, chief executive of Tameside Hospital Trust, has left her job and Medical Director Tariq Mahmood has also stepped down.

Tameside is one of 14 hospitals under scrutiny for its high death rates.

Dominic Hughes reports.
