Pressures on King’s College as CEO set to resign

Following Lord Kerslake’s much publicised resignation last December, chief executive Nick Soberly has announced that he is to resign from his post at King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

Although the reasons behind Moberly’s resignation have not been made clear, reports speculate that it could be related to increased pressure on the trust or the clear financial problems it faces, in a similar fashion to the funding protests behind Kerslake’s departure.

Moberly, who has been CEO at the trust since August 2015, will leave his position at the end of April, with the hospital under serious financial pressure, with a near-£100 million deficit.

In a statement, the trust said: “Nick was appointed in August 2015 and during his tenure the trust has witnessed some notable successes as well as experienced significant challenges. Under his leadership King’s played a critical role in London’s response to the three major incidents last year. The trust continues to deliver some of the best patient outcomes nationally and is at the vanguard of research and innovations that have improved both patient treatment and care.”
