NHS FD opts for early releaseDavid Jetuah
An FD jailed for overvaluing hospital land has decided not to contest his punishment as he prepares for early release from prison.
The courts had already denied Philip Neal, the former FD of the Mid-Essex Hospital Services NHS Trust, leave to appeal, but he has opted not to take further action as he awaits release less than four months into his year-long sentence.
Non-violent criminals qualify for early-release from prison, but in some cases time served can be lost if judges find an appeal spurious.
‘There were no practical advantages to appealing,’ said Steve Sharp of Bivonas, representing Neal. ‘I still maintain the original sentence was excessive and unnecessary.’
