The former boss of University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust is still being paid his full salary a year after he resigned.

Tony Halsall stepped down as chief executive of UHMBT in February 2012.

However, the trust has revealed Mr Halsall will continue to claim his £150,000 salary until October, 2013.

A police investigation into deaths at the baby unit at Furness General Hospital has been ongoing since 2011.

When Mr Halsall stepped down, a confidentiality agreement was signed meaning the details of his severance would not be revealed.

His leaving package included his full salary, a lease car and career management advice, and six months’ pay in lieu of notice, the trust confirmed.
