Statement from David Loughton CBE, Chief Executive of The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust:
"On behalf of the Board, I welcome the announcement of the Secretary of State’s decision today to approve the recommendation of the Trust Special Administrator (TSA) to dissolve Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust. I am sure this will bring some certainty and stability for the staff and patients of Stafford and Cannock Chase Hospitals. I believe that decision provides us with a superb opportunity to make a real difference to the patients and populations we serve.
"I will keep you updated as plans develop over the coming weeks and months either directly or through joint briefings with the TSA."
