STRUCTURE: A key meeting regarding the future of Surrey and Sussex Healthcare Trust’s bid for foundation trust status has been postponed.  

In his weekly message to staff, trust chief executive Michael Wilson said: “I was due to meet the NHS Trust Development Authority this week to discuss our trust’s future and how we progress towards foundation trust status.

“Due to a last minute change of plan at the Department of Health, the meeting got postponed but I am expecting it to be rescheduled soon.

“I just want to reassure staff that based on the current level of performance everything is on the right track.”
