A former senior NHS official is to face fraud charges for allegedly faking his CV to secure a £ 120,000- a- year chief executive's position.
Neil Taylor will appear before magistrates in Shrewsbury, Shropshire, next month to face three counts of obtaining a pecuniary advantage by deception.
The 42-year-old, from Solihull, stepped down as chief executive of the Shrewsbury and Telford Hospitals NHS Trust last October following an internal investigation.
He was also chief executive of the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital before it merged with the Princess Royal Hospital.
The charges are understood to concern his qualifications and CV for the posts in Shropshire.
Mr Taylor was previously chief executive of the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham.
An investigation was launched after the allegations came to light and involved the National Health Service Counter Fraud Service, assisted by West Mercia Police.
