Full Story at HSJ 6 October 2017

A hospital and mental health trust have confirmed their joint board and management structure, HSJ can reveal.
North Cumbria University Hospitals Trust chief executive Stephen Eames took up the role of interim chief executive of Cumbria Partnership Foundation Trust in September.
The move was approved by the trusts’ boards last week and is a major step towards the further integration of the two trusts, which HSJ revealed in March.
The hospital trust and mental health and community services FT have this week agreed a joint governance and accountability structure.
