  5. Fareham MP reacts to resignation of Southern Health chairman

    More needs to be done to reassure the public following the resignation of Southern Health's chairman Tim Smart, Conservative MP for Fareham Suella Fernandes has said.

    Last month Mr Smart was criticised for allowing its under-fire chief executive Katrina Percy to move to another post on the same pay.

    The trust said he stepped down for "personal reasons".  

    Quote Message: I am concerned to see more turnover at the top of Southern Health. What the trust needs is reliable and stable governance which has a focus on correcting the failures of the past, but this just isn’t possible without strong leadership – far more needs to be done to reassure the public. The public will understandably be concerned with the issues highlighted in Southern Health, I hope the trust gets the governance it needs to drive through the vital change needed to improve service quality and restore public confidence. from Suella Fernandes MP for Fareham
