STRUCTURE: Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Trust has been supplying Monitor with further information regarding its attempts to become a foundation trust.

In her report to the board in February, chief executive Marianne Griffiths said: “Last month I reported that we were gathering more information to give Monitor further assurance.

“At the time of writing my report, this exercise is almost completed and the documents will be with Monitor by the end of the month. I would like to thank the teams across the trust who have been responding to our requests for additional information.”
