Thank you for your correspondence of 18 and 25 October to Jeremy 1–lunt about your employment situation at Imperial Healthcare NHS Trust.

I was sorry to read of your continuing concerns. I note that you have written directly to Dr Kathy McLean, Medical Director at the NI–IS Trust Development Authority (NHS TDA) to raise these matters.

My officials have again contacted the NHS TDA for further information about your situation. I am informed that your contract of employment with Imperial Healthcare

has been extended until the end of November to enable you to complete work projects.

I understand that the NHS TDA intends to respond separately.

I am sure you are pleased at the extension of your contract and I would acknowledge the positive role of the NHS TDA and the Trust in supporting you during this period of uncertainty.

I am aware that you have applied for roles in other NHS organisations and you are of course free to apply for roles within Imperial Healthcare. I hope you secure a suitable role so n.
