Hospital to be privately run19th February 2010
Hinchingbrooke district general hospital in Cambridgeshire looks set to be the first to be run by a private firm.
Five private health providers are competing to manage the failing hospital after the only NHS bidder – Cambridge University Hospitals Trust – withdraw from the race because of the impact it may have on its existing services. The East of England health authority has denied the move amounted to privatisation but health union Unison said the move was part of a “dangerous experiment” involving bidders with no experience.
