Hospital finance boss quits over cancer waiting times scandal
AN executive director at Colchester hospitals trust has resigned over the cancer waiting times scandal.
Finance director Mike Baker carried out a flawed inquiry in 2012 over allegations that staff were bullied into changing patient records to meet government targets.
Mr Baker, 67, of West Bergholt, admitted he had “let people down”.
He had been due to retire but brought that forward after he read the report by the Care Quality Commission that sparked the cancer inquiry.
