RCN comment on South London Healthcare Trust

Published: 26 June 2012

Commenting on the situation at South London Healthcare Trust, Dr Peter Carter, RCN Chief Executive & General Secretary, said: “The current situation presents a worrying state of affairs for both patients and staff at South London Healthcare Trust. The Trust has been facing financial challenges for quite some time under the burden of PFI contracts. Despite this, staff have continued to do their best for patients, providing high levels of care. “Nevertheless, the current issues must be addressed as a matter of urgency as the Trust simply cannot continue to run at such a large deficit. If alternative methods of service delivery are to be considered, it is essential that patients, staff and the public are closely involved in the consultation process and that high levels of care continue to be maintained. Equally, the Government should now go back to the PFI contractors involved and look at how the current debts could be managed more effectively.” Ends Notes to editors 1.
