Breaking News: United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust boss quits

THE Chief Executive of United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust has quit for personal reasons.

Andrew North will leave the post at the end of November.

A spokesman for the trust, which runs Grantham Hospital, said: “This relates to the fact that a close family member has a serious illness and he has found it increasingly difficult to balance the demands of a challenging job with his commitments and obligations at home.

“The Trust will now begin work to put interim arrangements in place and to recruit a new chief executive for the future.”
