Graham Stuart MP has called a leaked report into the Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust “deeply concerning”. Mr Stuart, the MP for Beverley and Holderness, was responding to the article in local papers about the leaked report by external auditors KPMG into the Trust. The report is said to have identified a major conflict of interest between former Chief Executive Phil Morley and the Trust’s then Chief Operating Officer Amanda Pye. It concludes, “If confirmed, this would constitute a serious breach of governance.” Graham met with Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt on 2 December in Parliament together with East Riding Councillor Mike Whitehead, the former general manager of critical care and surgery at the Trust who has repeatedly raised concerns about the running of the Trust under Mr Morley.
