Hospital cuts jobs and closes wards

9th March 2011

The £256m Queen Alexandra Hospital in Cosham near Portsmouth – which only opened 18 months ago - has cut 700 jobs and closed wards.

Run by Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust and built under a private finance initiative scheme, finance director Robert Toole said the situation faced by the hospital was "challenging" but that it was on course to save £29m this financial year. In addition to job losses, around 100 beds will also be affected. The hospital has a budget of £340m but is still likely to be facing a deficit of about £6m.
