A TEMPORARY boss has been appointed to a hospital which could lose its A&E, maternity unit and paediatric in-patients service.

Ian Wilson takes over as Chief Executive of Queen Mary's Hospital, Sidcup (QMS) on December 1 until April next year.

This comes after the current Chief Executive of QMS Kate Grimes announced she was leaving after three years to run the Kingston Hospital NHS Trust.

As revealed in the Times this leaves just one permanent Chief Executive in the three hospital Trusts which decided last week to consult on a three-way merger.

Interim Chief Executive of Bromley NHS Trusts Michael Marchment confirmed this week he would be staying after his six-month contract expires next month.

But this still leaves Dr David Robson of Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Woolwich, as the only permanent chief left across the three Trusts. This latest appointment follows Mr Wilson's stint as Bromley hospitals interim Chief Executive from December last year to June this year, where he was paid £1,300 a day plus expenses. Chair of QMS David Palmer said: "He is very able and experienced, and knows this sector well having been interim Chief Executive for seven months at Bromley Hospital last year and before that was Interim Chief Executive at Brent Primary Care Trust.
