WORKFORCE: Mid Yorkshire Hospitals Trust has appointed a part-time interim nursing director.

Helen Thomson, Calderdale and Huddersfield Foundation Trust’s deputy chief executive and nursing director, is being seconded to the troubled multi-site trust.

The trust, the board of which has largely been replaced since the beginning of the year and which HSJ has revealed faces being placed in the failure regime, confirmed it has begun looking for a permanent chief nurse and medical director.
