Colchester Hospital director resigns over cancer scandal

An executive director has resigned over the cancer waiting times scandal at Colchester Hospital.

Finance director Mike Baker carried out a flawed inquiry last year over allegations that staff were bullied into changing patient records to meet government targets.

The claims were not made public until last month.

The BBC has also discovered chief executive Dr Gordon Coutts was told of the allegations by a patient, in 2011.

The hospital trust is facing three separate inquiries, including a criminal police investigation.
