There have been yet more comings and goings at the top at Cornwall's biggest hospital.

A new Chairwoman has been appointed at Treliske, on the same day that two more board members quit.

Sir Roger Boyle and Sue Hall announced they were resigning on Friday afternoon.

It comes after former Chairman Martin Watts and his replacement Mike Higgins both stepped down within two weeks.

Mr Higgins held the post for just two days, whilst Mr Watts has vowed to clear his name in the courts after an investigation upheld two complaints against his conduct.

Angela Ballatti will take up the post of Chairwoman in early July. She has more than 15 years' experience as a Chair of NHS boards across the country.

Angela said: "It is a great privilege to be asked to take the chairmanship role at Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust.  The organisation has clearly made great strides in improving services for the people of Cornwall over the last few years and I am looking forward to providing the stable board leadership to the Trust that will enable them to build on that success.  I am looking forward to working closely with Lezli Boswell and all of the staff at Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust."

The Chairman of the NHS Trust Development Authority, Sir Peter Carr said: "I am happy to confirm that we have appointed Angela Ballatti to Chair the Trust.  Angela is a hugely able and experienced Chair, having held the role at Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust for 6 years between 2006 and 2012. Prior to this she was a Chair of County Durham and Darlington Acute Hospitals and North Durham Healthcare NHS Trusts in the North East for nearly 9 years in total.

"I appreciate that the events of the last few weeks may have been an unsettling time for people in Cornwall.  That is exactly why we have appointed such an experienced Chair as Angela Ballatti.  I am hugely confident that she is exactly what is needed to provide that crucial stability and focus that is needed on the Board at the Trust."
