However, despite my instruction, she went ahead with her rotations without any consultation,” said Khan in a statement.“Ms Hicks further continued to deliberately ignore my instruction, thus, in May 2015, I once again wrote her instructing that the transfer of nurses out of the department, particularly the A&E, be put on hold until a meeting is convened to discuss the matter further,” the CEO outlined.
