Dr McBride, who is also chief medical officer, was appointed to the trust on a limited-term basis in December 2014, several months after previous chief executive Colm Donaghy took up a new post in England.

The Belfast Health and Social Care Trust is now recruiting a permanent chief executive.

Health Minister Michelle O'Neill praised Dr McBride's "dedication, commitment and hard work"
