It was with considerable regret that I heard the news that Tom Taylor is to leave his post as chief executive of Shrewsbury and Telford Hospitals Trust.
Tom Taylor has been a good friend to the NHS in Shropshire and steered the hospitals through a difficult time. He has worked hard to maintain morale and improve standards.
Our hospital services face very significant challenges in the next few years and the new chief executive will need tact, skill and all the support that we can offer.
I would like to wish Tom Taylor every success in his new Job.
