Job cuts at hospital Trust

15th March 2006

Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Trust, facing a £2m deficit is to shed 185 posts and shut an operating theatre to save money. It needs to cut budgets by more than £2m in the coming year.

Job cuts will affect the Edith Cavell, Peterborough General and Stamford hospitals across the board and at all levels from doctors to cleaning staff. The trust believes it can achieve the cuts without any redundancies and without affecting patient care.

The job losses were first announced last month. Now, following a 28-day consultation with managers and the unions, staff have been told it is highly probable some members of staff will be affected immediately.

The trust currently has 19 operating theatres in use and one of these, only used part-time, will be closed.
Interestingly the Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust was the only trust in Cambridgeshire to make it into the Nursing Times' Top 100 Employers survey.
