NHS Direct cuts budget

30th June 2011

NHS Direct is to cut its frontline staff budget by more than 10% in a bid to meet savings targets of £14.6m.

The organisation, which employs 800 nurses, is confident that redundancies can be avoided. Figures show that almost £8m has already been taken out of the £67m frontline staffing budget for 2011-12 with a further £2m-£4m needing to be found to cope with loss of income through reduced call volumes as the 0845 number is replaced by the new NHS 111 urgent care number.
