Cuts at Trafford General Hospital20th February 2008
Trafford Healthcare NHS Trust in Greater Manchester could cut 200 jobs as it tries to head off a deficit of £7m.
The Trust, which runs Altrincham General, Trafford and Stretford Memorial hospitals, is also planning to close two wards and two operating theatres and has been forced to borrow £3m from the government to pay staff wages. A recruitment freeze is now in place. Trafford General was the first NHS hospital to open in 1948 when the NHS was created.
