HOSPITAL bosses have appointed a third new chief executive in a year, writes Kate Nelson.

Michael Marchment is to take control of Bromley Hospitals NHS Trust from June 14, following a job as chief executive of West Midlands South Strategic Health Authority.

The 56-year-old replaces 'care-taker' boss Ian Wilson, who in turn replaced Antony Sumara, both of whom spent just six months in the top job.

Trust Chairman Huw Alderman said Mr Marchment held "the aim of making Bromley Hospitals one of the best trusts in the country".

The experienced NHS manager started as deputy chief executive last Tuesday to learn the Bromley ropes.

Mr Marchment previously oversaw 16 hospital, ambulance and primary care trusts, including University Hospitals Coventry & Warwickshire NHS Trust, which broke even last year despite being 'financially challenged'.

Like his predecessor, Mr Marchment will be an interim chief executive whilst the trust looks for a permanent candidate.
