A KEY figure in the project to close the QE2 Hospital's A&E department has quit - just four months into the job.

Previously, he was the trust's director of nursing since 2002.

His new job intended to provide "clear and dedicated clinical leadership" in the move to centralise A&E services at the Lister Hospital in Stevenage.
