NHS trust plans hospital bed cuts

30th May 2007

Four Greater Manchester hospitals are to cut 10% of beds to help the Pennine Acute Trust – which was £28m in debt last year - balance its books.

The units affected are Fairfield General Hospital in Bury, North Manchester General, the Royal Oldham Hospital and Rochdale Infirmary. Between them, their beds total of 2,279 will be cut by 221. Trust medical director Dr Ruth Jameson said reducing the beds through this programme would not affect patient services as the trust was becoming more efficient at using its resources.
