ONLY one permanent chief executive remains in office out of three health trusts lined up for a possible merger.

Queen Mary's Hospital (QMS) chief executive Kate Grimes announced last Tuesday she would be leaving the Trust after three years to manage Kingston Hospital NHS Trust ahead of a recommendation to merge the trusts in Bromley, Bexley and Woolwich.

A final date for her departure has yet to be agreed.

Her resignation leaves chief executive of Queen Elizabeth Hospital Dr David Robson as the only permanent boss in the three Trusts.

Chief executive of Bromley Hospitals NHS Trust Michael Marchment is only interim and started his six-month contract on June 13 this year.

Ms Grimes said: "A merged organisation will benefit from a new chief executive. While I am very sad to be going, this feels like a good time to move on.
