The chief executive of the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital has resigned following discontent among medical staff and a critical report which highlighted an alleged 'bullying culture'.
Anna Dugdale revealed last night that she would be stepping down after the Care Quality Commission (CQC) report, published earlier this month, which claimed there was a 'bullying culture' which 'emanated from the most senior management'.
Staff were informed in an email sent at 6.20am this morning.
The announcement came after more than 150 consultants met hospital chairman John Fry yesterday to raise concerns about how their trust dealt with the issues.
On her resignation, Mrs Dugdale said: ''I have worked at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital for many years, and as its chief executive for the last six. I love this hospital, I am so very proud of our staff and feel passionate about the care that we give our patients.'
