Dear Queen Mary SMT,
It has come to our attention that some QM staff who may have been eligible for the Voluntary Severance did not receive notification of the options available to them.
This is an extremely serious situation, and we therefore request that the VS scheme be suspended until the extent of this problem can be ascertained. We further recommend that notification of the scheme is distributed consistently across all of QM to ensure that all eligible staff have the full time period to consider their options, and therefore that the deadline for submissions to the VS scheme is extended.
