Berkshire hospital to axe up to 600 jobs

6th August 2010

The BBC has discovered that the Royal Berkshire Hospital is planning to get rid of 600 staff by 2015 in order to make savings of £60 million.

The hospital is the largest employer in Reading and employs more than 4,000 people. Alistair Maclean, from the Independent Democratic Union, said: "These cuts are far too severe and far too immediate. It is clear that this announcement is a result of swingeing cuts that have been made in the health service and is going to have a devastating impact on health service in Berkshire."
