JPH chairman’s job will pay �45,000 for 3 days a week
A GREAT Yarmouth hospital which was under fire from inspectors has launched its search for a new chairman.
The salary for the post, which is being advertised, is �45,000 for a minimum of three days a week.
The James Paget University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is seeking a new chairman to help lead the trust as it continues to improve the care offered to patients.
Non-executive director Peter Franzen, OBE, took on the role of interim chairman in November last year after John Hemming resigned from the role following critical Care Quality Commission (CQC) reports.
In December and January the CQC lifted the warning notices which had been placed on the James Paget University Hospital and staff continue to focus on meeting the care standards for patients.
