Fury over C difficile pay-off

Discuss news stories and political issues that affect carers.
The former chief executive of a trust at the centre of an infection control scandal is to get a £75,000 pay-off.

Rose Gibb, who led Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells trust, will only get her "legal entitlement" of six months' salary, the trust said yesterday.

Liberal Democrat health spokesman Norman Lamb said: "Pay-offs to senior health executives have become obscene. This is not an isolated case. People will not tolerate seeing cutbacks to local health services at the same time as precious NHS funds are used to pay off individuals in circumstances where the Healthcare Commission has issued a damning report."

Ms Gibb's partner, Mark Rees, received a £170,000 pay-off when he quit as chief executive of Barking, Havering and Redbridge Hospitals trust days before her resignation.
