WORKFORCE: A human resources director who had been suspended has lost her job despite a disciplinary investigation finding she had no case to answer, HSJ can reveal.

Sue Green has been made redundant following Wirral University Teaching Hospital Foundation Trust’s decision to “streamline the executive structure”.

HSJ revealed in October that Ms Green, the trust’s director of HR and organisational development since 2008, had been suspended pending an investigation, although the trust refused to give a reason for the probe.

Ms Green was the last remaining executive director to have served under previous chief executive Len Richards, who left the trust in August 2011.

HSJ has obtained two emails current chief executive David Allison sent to staff.

In the first, he wrote that “the investigation has been concluded and the trust is satisfied there is no basis for disciplinary action” against Ms Green.

In the second – sent this afternoon – he said Ms Green had been made redundant after her role was removed from the executive structure.
