The chief executive of a cancer centre has been suspended as part of a disciplinary investigation.

Suspending Caroline Shaw CBE from the Greater Manchester-based Christie NHS Foundation Trust was a "neutral act", said chairman Lord Keith Bradley.

He said it was part of the normal disciplinary process but would not say what prompted the investigation nor what it was into.

Mrs Shaw she would give "total co-operation" to the investigation.

She said: "I was informed yesterday that I have been suspended pending an inquiry into an internal allegation, as per our rigorous processes.

"I completely understand that when any allegation is made this process must be followed and I welcome a full investigation into the matter.

"I will be giving my total co-operation, confident of a swift and positive conclusion."

A trust statement said its charity activities and patient care would not be affected, but no-one at the trust would give details about the allegations under investigation.
