The transfer of the management of Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust (“MSFT”) services to University Hospital of North Staffordshire NHS Trust and The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust took place on 1 November 2014.

Alan Bloom, Alan Hudson and Hugo Mascie-Taylor stepped down from their positions as Trust Special Administrators on 31 October 2014. Monitor has appointed a new TSA, Tim Rideout, from 1 November 2014. Tim Rideout will remain a TSA to deal with any potential criminal liabilities.

The purpose of the new TSA will be solely to manage any potential criminal liabilities. As such, MSFT will only continue to exist as a shell legal entity for a limited time after the transfer of management services on 1 November 2014.  It is not possible for the Trust’s criminal liabilities to be transferred and, if the Trust were dissolved on 1 November 2014, any criminal liabilities would terminate at that time. It has therefore been agreed that the Trust will not be dissolved until 1 November 2017.
