Hospital asks staff to work for free

7th October 2011

Staff at Whipps Cross University Hospital in east London have been urged to give up some of their annual leave or do unpaid work to save money.

The NHS trust has told its 3,400 staff that it was facing a £4.5m deficit and needed to take "extraordinary financial measures". Chief executive Cathy Geddes said the move would be purely voluntary and a one-off measure that would not affect individual’s terms and conditions. Consultants are also being asked to do extra clinical sessions.
