Theatre scrapped without treating a patient

2nd November 2010

An operating theatre intended for use to treat minor problems, such as foot injuries, is to be scrapped although it has never been used.

The theatre is located at the Fryatt Hospital and Mayflower Medical Centre in Essex. Matt Bushell from the North East Essex Primary Care Trust said He said: "There are always changes in policy at the NHS and there have been some very important changes since the Fryatt was opened as a new hospital. We are moving on from that idea (of the operating theatre); it's not going to be viable."
