Ex-NHS boss has Australian corruption charges dropped

A former boss of NHS hospitals in England accused of corruption in Australia has had his case thrown out of court.

Prosecutors in Brisbane have dropped charges against Malcolm Stamp, who had been accused of nepotism and other offences.

The Queensland Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions confirmed the matter had been discontinued.

Mr Stamp, who lives in Norfolk, has been contacted for comment.

The case centred on Mr Stamp's time as chief executive of the Metro North Health and Hospital Service in Brisbane between 2013 and 2014.

The Queensland Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) had charged him with dishonestly seeking to procure a job for his daughter at the hospital and trying to cover it up.

At the time the CCC alleged Mr Stamp had "corruptly arranged for a co-offender to hire his daughter and for the Metro North Hospital and Health Service to pay her wage to a company linked to a co-offender".
