No replacement found yet for hospital chief

NO replacement has been found yet for the hospital trust’s outgoing chief executive.

Diane Whittingham (pictured) is stepping down from the post at Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust in March 2012.

December’s trust board meeting heard an initial interview processes had found no suitable replacement.

Chairman Andrew Haigh said there would be a more “focused” search now, with no further advertisements of the post, and there were a number of individuals the trust was talking to about the post.

He said: “We have a list of ten and are working towards the end of January for the formal interview process for them.”

Diane will remain in the post until March 2012.
