Failing hospitals to be bailed out4th September 2008

The Department of Health is to issue a consultation paper this month that rules out insolvency for trusts that are failing financially in a package that is seen as a last resort measure for such trusts. It would put measures in place if a foundation trust or an NHS acute trust was seriously financially underperforming or failing to meet minimum clinical or quality standards.
