It's a Start...

Latest update on the Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust fiasco is that this afternoon, Trust Chairman James Lee has tendered his resignation to Health Secretary Alan Johnson.

This was the second time in a week Mr Lee has offered to resign - it was tabled last week to the Trust Board but refused. Apparently growing public concern led to today's action.

With rumours rife about a civil "class action" in the offing from the families of those who died from C-Difficile on Miss Gibb and Mr Lee's watch, let alone a possible criminal prosecution being considered by Kent Police, let's hope it won't be long before the other key people responsible for this nightmare display some honour and fall on their swords too.

I'd hate to think that our new hospital could possibly proceed with the involvement of any of those responsible for this fiasco...
