Health Secretary Andrew Lansley fears that there are chances that financial problems may take the NHS to its doom. He said so after seeing the deteriorating condition of the South London Healthcare NHS trust.
The trust, which runs three hospitals, has been facing a loss of £1million per week. The prevailing condition has forced Lansley to take strict action against the trust. He has appointed a special administrator, who would make sure that losses can be declined and profit factor can be introduced.
Andrew Lansley has already warned that staff should be prepared to see some strict actions, like sacking of employees, change in policies and measures by which profit can be infused in the debt ridden trust.
It would not be wrong to say that one of the major reasons for such deteriorating condition of the trust is due to the demand of the government to save £20billion. The pressure to save more and more funds has led the trusts to go into debt and has also made it difficult for them to deliver good performance.
"A central objective for all providers is to ensure they deliver high quality to patients that is clinically and financially sustainable for the long term", said Lansley in a letter, which he has sent to the trust.
