South London Healthcare in administration

12th July 2012

The government has announced that South London Healthcare NHS Trust is to be put into administration after it ran up deficits of more than £150m since being created in 2009.

Health Secretary Andrew Lansley has appointed a trust special administrator to go into the trust, which he added was “in the interests of the health service” and “the patients the trust serves.” The trust, the first to be put into administration, serves more than one million people and runs the Queen Elizabeth in Woolwich being one of the busiest hospitals in London.
