Considerable talent; Letters.

ficer geto AS the female Chief Executive Of of the Institute of Healthcare Mana ment, an organisationwhich represents some 5,000 members, Iwas appalled read of the misrepresentation of Marsh in her capacity as CEO of only four Children's Hospitals UK.

Miss one of in the as Miss Marsh's well-earned position CEO has been undermined by the media who have sought to imply that her success is based only on her private life.

Her appointment was made after a rigorous assessment process and such misreporting of the facts only undermines the work of the Birmingham Children's Hospital and the considerable talent she has demonstrated as the youngest CEO in the country.

Entering the health service as a management trainee, Miss Marsh's success is an inspiration to women, especially those aspirant management trainees who legitimately perceive her to be a success story. Such media attention only distracts from her considerable achievements.

The NHS invests in management trainees because they have the potential to be future leaders of the NHS. When a former trainee succeeds in attaining a CEO position we should be celebrating their success and not undermining their reputation.
