More cuts to come at Hinchingbrooke hospital

Issue No. 2290

The new private bosses of Hinchingbrooke hospital in Cambridgeshire will need to make cuts of £10 million in order to turn a profit, a report says.

A progress report on their business plan revealed the figure this week. It will mean swingeing cuts—and private bosses will decide where the axe will fall.

Hinchingbrooke became the first privately managed NHS hospital when it was taken over by the hedge fund backed firm Circle Health on 1 February.
