The payment of a £190,000 salary to an interim chief executive has been defended by Sherwood Forest Hospitals Trust.
Mr Eric Morton was in post from October 2012 to June 2013. He was appointed following a critical report from independent regulator Monitor.
The figure, included in the trust’s annual report, refers to the amount he was paid up to March 31.
The executive director of human resource, Karen Fisher, said: “At the time of the appointment the trust was facing significant challenges that needed particular skills and leadership to begin the turnaround of the organisation.”
