Chairman of major London hospital trust Lord Kerslake resigns in NHS funding protest

Lord Kerslake has resigned as the chairman of a major London hospital trust because of NHS funding problems.

The former head of the civil service says the government is being unrealistic about the challenges facing the health service.

He announced he was stepping down as chairman of King's College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust on Sunday.

NHS Improvement described the hospital's financial performance as "unacceptable".

A spokeswoman added: "It is the worst in the NHS and continues to deteriorate."
