The trust has appointed an interim and is currently recruiting for a full time replacement.

Chief executive Hisham Abdel-Rahman said: “We were sorry to see Jenny go – she’s been a true leader here, and she’s played a huge part in improving efficiency and performance at Hinchingbrooke.”

“We’re sure that Newnham College will prove stimulating, and we wish her all the best in the new role.”

Meanwhile, Hinchingbrooke has declined to disclose its year to date financial position for month six. It did not provide a finance paper for its October board meeting.  

Its most recent recorded financial position is a £2.7m deficit at the end of quarter one for 2014-15, £1.6m more than planned.

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group has requested the trust put a remedial action plan in place after missing the four hour acccident and emergency waiting time standard in both July and September, according to papers discussed at the trust’s board meeting.

The CCG has warned that it could issue a financial penalty against the trust worth 2 per cent of its contract value, estimated at £200,000 per month, if it fails to deliver on the plan.
